The courses being offered in Moses Lake are taught by Whitworth instructors who are gearing the curriculum toward business-based management courses that are applicable to both public and private organizations. Coursework will involve a blend of theory and practical application in a business setting. The class schedule is made up of six-week, accelerated hybrid courses, which are formatted so that students have limited time in the classroom, engaging with the instructor and their classmates online between class sessions. Students attend classes two evenings and one Saturday during the six-week period. Classes are set to begin in August.
“An organizational management degree provides current and practical business education that is applicable to all levels of management in organizations of any size,” says Cheryl Vawter, associate vice president of enrollment management for graduate and continuing studies at Whitworth University.
Vawter says the new program is a valuable option for non-traditional students in the Moses Lake area because it provides them with the opportunity for in-person engagement with actual Whitworth faculty. She says that the program is also convenient for non-traditional students because classes are held just two weekday evenings and one Saturday throughout the six-week course. “Most people can complete their degree in just over two years,” Vawter says.
