New, Upcoming Online Programs Offer More Options for Career Advancement

October 11, 2017

As a leader in the world of online education, Liberty University continues to evaluate market demands and tailor degree programs to meet growing needs. This fall, nearly 50 new online degrees, certifications, concentrations, or specializations launched across a number of disciplines — and more are in the pipeline for 2018.

Liberty’s online programs are designed to be both academically rigorous (many have the same specialized accreditation as their residential counterparts in addition to the university’s stringent regional accreditation) as well as flexible and affordable, so there is no need for students to disrupt their current jobs or uproot their families to continue their education and advance their careers.

To learn more about these new programs and to enroll, go to or call (800) 424-9595.
