Gordon Adds English, History Degrees

Gordon College received approval Wednesday from the Board of Regents to offer two additional baccalaureate degrees.

Beginning with the fall 2011 semester, Gordon will offer a Bachelor of Arts in English and a Bachelor of Arts in History.

Gordon currently offers baccalaureate degrees in Early Childhood Education, Mathematics, Biology and a RN to BSN completion degree as well as associate degrees in 40 programs of study.

“We are very pleased to be able to offer students two additional degree opportunities,” said Gordon College President Shelley Nickel. “Our excellent baccalaureate degrees in the core areas of biology, English, history, and mathematics will provide the regional workforce with employees with good critical thinking and communication skills and will provide opportunities for our students to move on to graduate and professional studies in a variety of areas including health services, medicine, and law. Further, since each of these majors includes a track that permits students to complete teaching certification, these majors will help address the growing statewide need of highly qualified teachers of biology, mathematics, history, social studies, and English.”
