WVU Parkersburg’s fall semester will feature a variety of new beginnings.
The semester marks the first under the helm of President Marie Foster Gnage, who became the institution’s sixth president on July 1. Also, this is the 15th year of the college’s tenure as a regional campus of West Virginia University.
New academic programs are being offered for the first time as well, including an on-line associate degree. WVU Parkersburg, in conjunction with Potomac State College of WVU, is offering its Associate in Applied Science degree in Criminal Justice via the internet. It is the first degree the Parkersburg campus is offering totally on line.
Also, an associate program for adult learners, the first of its kind being offered statewide, is available this fall at WVU Parkersburg. The Board of Governors Associate in Applied Science degree affords area residents the opportunity to combine traditional college classroom credit with life/work experience. Similar to the Regents Bachelor of Arts degree, the adult learner associate degree is designed for those who have been out of high school for at least two years.
