Academic Programs

The academic programs at the Lake Campus consist of Associate of Arts and Associate of Science degrees and Associate of Applied Business, Associate of Applied Science, and Associate of Technical Study degrees; Bachelor of Science in Early Childhood Education, Bachelor of Science in Organizational Leadership, and a Bachelor of Science in Nursing completion program; Master of Business Administration and Master of Education. Programs leading to the Associate of Arts or the Associate of Science degrees serve as prebaccalaureate programs to many of the degree programs offered at the Dayton campus. Students can complete up to two years of course work before moving on to the Dayton campus for completion of a bachelor's degree or transferring to another four-year institution.

Writing Across the Curriculum (WAC)

Baccalaureate degree students must complete a minimum of six designated Writing Intensive (WI) courses, at least four in General Education (GE), (in addition to ENG 101 and 102) and two in the major. Lake Campus students should meet with their advisor to determine the effect of this requirement on their individual programs.

Each WI course is clearly identified in the quarterly class schedule. Students registering for a WI course are automatically registered for the writing component of the course, an "0" credit hour lab. Students may not drop a WI course and lab separately.

Brief descriptions of programs in both the academic and technical areas follow.

Bachelor of Science (B.S.) Organizational Leadership

The Bachelor of Science in Organizational Leadership degree was developed as a degree completion program for students who possess an associate degree (or an equivalent number of credit hours) and are interested in pursuing leadership positions within the private, public and nonprofit sectors of the economy. This unique, multidisciplinary program requires students to take courses from the Raj Soin College of Business, the College of Education and Human Services, and the College of Liberal Arts. It provides students with broad academic experience as well as the practical background needed to ready them for the contemporary work environment. Students will be exposed to the theory and practice necessary for leading today's organizations and be given the opportunity to develop skills in planning and controlling the human, physical, financial, and technical resources within organizations.
