I would like to see more law classes personally. I wish there was a law class I could take for the high school program. I noticed how they have a high school medical vocational program and I wish they would have law
I graduated from the Associates in Psychology course in 2008. It was said that a Bachelor program would be available in 2009 sometime. Never happened. So, instead of waiting...maybe forever...and turning blue while I hold my breath.....I decided to go ahead and do the Bachelor in General Studies.
Definitely gourmet baking and cake design/decorating. It would compliment the Gourmet Cooking and Catering and I'll bet everyone in GCC would do back flips to sign up for it as well.
I totally agree , Gourmet Baking would be awesome ...I am almost done with Gourmet Cooking & Catering on Lesson # 18 .......I see the light at the end of the tunnel now .I would sign up for it . I loved the Courses and feel confident and would recommend this Course to everyone who adores Cooking and Creating Gourmet meals .Thank you Ashworth College . I Love You !
I either wanna own my own non-profit organization or work for one. So one of these Master's degrees would be great if they had them!
Even, if just one was an option for the Master's program that would be a dream come true!
I agree with this post because most government jobs recongize degrees accredited by the DTCE. This would be a great option for people that want to enhance there careers or enter the federal government. I also noticed that local governments don't stress about the regioanl accrediation as much.
CADD Drafting in general and architectural drafting in particular. Very little is offered online for architecture and almost nothing in an actual diploma or degree setting.
Also wouldn't mind seeing more vocational diploma programs such as landscape design offered as a 5 course certificate.
A degree program for landscaping would be great, not just a certificate program. Classes offered in the Agricultural field would be good as well to help those living in those areas.
I wish they would offer a Bachelors in healthcare management. They offer associates and masters, so I'm not sure how one is supposed to sign up for the master's program if you don't offer bachelors. Does anyone out there know what college offers it so when I am done with my associates I can work on ba. Thanks
I know! I'm in the AS HR program and I'm like do I find another college or do I just choose Business Administration or Management? It sucks because they have a HR Masters program but nothing in the middle.
Maybe a MA in General Studies. That might be easier since they already have the AA and BA in General Studies. Although Interdisciplinary Studies sounds better. More electives would be nice too.
Bachelors in psychology, preferably a masters.
Bachelors in international business and graduate certificate in international business.
Bachelors in conservation or a related field.
Bachelors in political science.
Bachelors in Health Care Adminstration (a lot of people get the associates and then a bachelors in something else before doing the MBA or masters).
Bachelors in Human Resources (same reason as above).
Bachelors in paralegal studies.
There are a lot of programs they could add. ^_^
I originally had hoped for the BS in Psych, but couldn't wait for it. I ended up doing BS in CJ and have at least a year to go, but would like to get a Masters through AC if anything interesting comes available. If not, I'll most likely seek out another school. My AAS in Psych and BS in CJ are work related. My Masters is for personal interest. BTW, any word on the Psych program, or did that just fall through?
Originally they told me when I enrolled in the AAS of psychology (back when it was the only psychology. It's really nice of them to give advanced notice they were gonna offer a new version less then six months after I joined), that they would have it available in Fall 2011. Obviously that didn't happen. They said it would be available this winter. That didn't happen. Then they pushed it to spring. That didn't happen. I asked if it would be available anytime in the 2012 or 2014 timeframe. Their response was they didn't know. I asked this a few months ago. It might be possible something has changed.
But here is what I find confusing.
In that same time frame they have managed to do the following:
1) Add the Sandals and ABC membership to the Wedding Planner program. That is awesome.
2) Made it possible to get certified for Medical Office Assistant which is FANTASTIC.
3) They added an associates AND bachelors in general studies. This is not something I personally have any interest in. But good for those that do.
4) They have changed the course outline for several bachelors and associates degree.
I"m not sure what the hold up is. I don't know if DETC is handling a lot of requests right now or if it is just a super long process to get something approved. You'd think that a bachelors in psychology would just be a few more psychology classes and mostly general education classes thrown in. You would think it would be relatively easy since they already have two associates in it. But I don't know what is going on lol. I hope that helps. I"m gonna have to change my major over this. I can't afford to wait around.
Yes, they have added quite a bit lately. Even though I have hopes for more options, if nothing more comes up in the way of MA or MS degrees, I will most likely go with the Master of Science in Human Resource Management. I do have some background in this and have some interest. I have worked as a Licensed Insurance Agent and, on the military side, Retention NCO/Career Counselor. Also, I would prefer to stick with Ashworth due to cost and convenience. I am already familiar with how the programs work and, for the most part, have been happy with my experience.
Bachelors in Health Care Administration
I hate that I will have to switch over to something else to get my Bachelors and switch back to Health Care Administration if I choose to get my Masters! I like Ashworth but I will probably switch schools to avoid switching my field of study.
Well I guess you could make the arguement if you do a bachelors in say business adminstration (Which seems to be a popular choice for the health care admin people) you will be more well rounded. If getting a job in the health care field doesn't work out you would have a more broad degree to fall back on. But I feel so bad for the health care and human resource people!
My friend is attending community college and her professor told her that a lot of lawyers look at graduates with a 4 year degree in Paralegal Studies first. I've done a little research and found that a four year degree is more beneficial than a two year so I did not pursue the degree. I have a high interest in law and helping people but I want to make sure that I have the correct foundations. As a student in the human resources program, I want a bachelors degree and may just find an online college that offers it.
Good luck. Yes, in general if you can get a higher degree, it's better to go for it. Right now an associates seems to be the standard, but in a few years, maybe a bachelors will be.
I think that AutoCAD and CADD drafting and design is missing. Also Civil Engineering and Construction Technology, Construction Estimation related courses/programs (Career, Certificate or Associate Degree).
I agree with that Toric, I see many Executive Assistant jobs for great money, and I'd like to maybe take certification on that. That goes over all the computer programs like Microsoft office and/or Suite. I'd love that.
