New academic programming for fall 2014

Penn State Schuylkill is pleased to announce the addition of two new, four-year academic programs.

After extensive research related to national employment opportunities, an Accounting option of the bachelor of science in Business degree, and a bachelor of arts in Corporate Communication degree will be available beginning in the fall 2014 semester. Students will be able to complete all four years of each program at Penn State Schuylkill.

The Accounting option will be offered in collaboration with Penn State Hazleton and Wilkes-Barre, and the Corporate Communication degree in collaboration with Penn State Hazleton, Wilkes-Barre, and Worthington Scranton. Courses will be delivered face-to-face, online, and through video conferencing.

The Accounting option focuses on the development and interpretation of financial information critical to managerial decision-making. It provides students with the skills and knowledge necessary to pursue careers in business with an emphasis on the areas of financial and managerial accounting, systems and controls, auditing, and taxation.

Corporate Communication majors will be provided with the skills and knowledge necessary to prepare themselves for positions in editing, writing, technical writing, training and development, and public information.
