Beginning this fall, the University of Nebraska at Kearney will offer undergraduate degrees in business management and criminal justice in North Platte.

An informational meeting is set for 5:30 p.m. Wednesday, July 24, on the McDonald-Belton campus in North Platte. Both degrees will be discussed, and there will be a question and answer period.

“UNK is excited to deliver these off-campus programs to North Platte, because they allow students to stay close to home,” said Gloria Vavricka, associate dean of continuing education. “This program is designed for the working adult who has professional or personal commitments and is unable to attend classes during the day or on the UNK campus. Students will attend class only one night a week, yet earn six credit hours each semester.”

“UNK will provide the delivery of the upper division courses, allowing the students to take the lower division courses from their local community college,” said Steve Amundson, off-campus business adviser. “Up to 66 credit hours may be transferred in from a community college.”

“The new 2+2 criminal justice program from UNK will serve the needs of professionals in Nebraska by allowing them to conveniently complete a criminal justice degree,” said Dr. Joe Carlson Jr., chair of the UNK Department of Criminal Justice.

The degrees are being offered by the Department of Criminal Justice and the Department of Management and Marketing, through the UNK Division of Continuing Education.
