Evening Degree Programs
The following programs can be completed in the evening to accommodate most work schedules. Classes typically start at 6:00 pm and are held on the Albany campus.
The B.S. in Accounting is a degree-completion program. Students who enter this program have already completed some college-level work, and are prepared to pursue a Bachelor’s degree. Students will also be prepared to sit for the CPA exam upon completion of the program if they meet the requisite number of satisfactory college credits.
The B.S. in Business Administration is for students who are able to accumulate a total of 60 credit hours of liberal arts and sciences. The B.B.A. requires fewer credits hours of liberal arts and sciences and is for students who want to take a larger number of business courses or for students who bring in a more substantial professional background.
The B.S. program for RN’s is designed to serve working professionals who are already registered nurses (RN) or are eligible candidates for the National Examination for Licensure as Registered Professional Nurses (NCLEX-RN).
The B.S. in Psychology offers theoretical and applied courses geared to the understanding of human behavior. The program is designed to enhance analytical reasoning and critical thinking skills necessary for the work world or for entry into graduate study. Many graduates pursue the MA in community psychology through Sage Graduate School.
