Regents approve new program at Kansas States
MANHATTAN, Kan. (AP) — Kansas State will offer a new bachelor’s degree in education studies beginning in August.
The university announced Thursday the program will require 120 hours to complete through the College of Education.
The Manhattan Mercury reports the program doesn’t offer a license for K-12 teachers. It offers specialized education courses for people not wanting to teach in a traditional classroom, with courses such as pop culture and educational psychology.
Currently, 12 Kansas State faculty members are scheduled to teach the program. Each student would have an internship before graduation.
The university also announced that it will begin an online Kansas insurance certification for undergraduates in spring 2019. The program offers a stand-alone credential for those with a bachelor’s degree, or can be a path to the university’s online bachelor’s degree in personal financial planning.
