South Carolina State University will soon offer political science/public administration courses online as well as through traditional classes.

At a special called meeting Tuesday, trustees voted by teleconference to approve a proclamation adding 12 credits of public administration courses and six credits of management courses as online offerings toward a bachelor’s degree.

The curriculum change is meant to increase enrollment and appeal to working adults, Provost Dr. Learie Luke said.

“The significance of this program revision is the delivery of the public administration program online for non-traditional students, so it’s a flexible format, and our three professors in the program are all trained to deliver this program online,” Luke said.

“So we think it’s going to be a great benefit to the state. Many people work in the public sector and the private sector, and they would like to get a full degree for career mobility, so we think it’s going to be a great program for that,” he said.

The proclamation will be presented to the South Carolina Commission on Higher Education, Luke said.
