Two Paths to One Great Degree
Residential On-Campus Program
Since 2002, USCB has offered the B.S. in Human Services primarily through residential, face-to-face courses. The convenience of online learning has led to some courses being offered in both formats. Going forward, many major requirements courses will be offered online, as well as in the classroom. Additional courses, especially electives, will be offered in both online and face-to-face format, allowing students to choose courses that best fit their preferences. Students who choose to pursue the USCB residential program will have a wider array of course options, and may enjoy the benefits of both face-to-face and online courses.
Palmetto College Online Degree Completion Program
Starting in the Fall 2013, USCB will offer the Human Services Degree online under the general auspices of the University of South Carolina’s Palmetto College. Students who have completed 60-hours of course work will be able to complete all Human Services Program and major requirements online. Most of these courses will be offered in an 8-week accelerated format. Students who have completed their General Education Requirements, and who enroll full-time in the program, could complete the degree in just over two years. The same highly qualified faculty that teach face-to-face courses at USCB will teach Palmetto College online courses. All courses will be designed in accordance with the latest online learning quality standards.
