The University of Central Arkansas in Conway is adding several night and online classes in what it calls an effort to accommodate working adults.
The new evening program will allow individuals to earn a bachelor's degree in the areas of general business, history or speech communication. Additional online courses will be offered for those interested in earning a graduate certificate or master's degree in school leadership, geographic information systems, instructional technology, early childhood education or nursing.
"UCA understands that not everyone can pursue a college degree during the day," saidLance Grahn, provost and vice president for academic affairs. "These majors are especially appropriate to the needs of working adults who wish to complete a degree and further their career goals."
In addition, several of UCA's offices - Financial Aid, Academic Advising Center, Admissions, Student Accounts, Registrar's and VA Student Services - have extended their hours to assist those interested in taking evening classes. Those offices will be open until 7 p.m. on Mondays and Tuesdays beginning Aug. 1.
