Fort Wayne, Ind. – Indiana Tech’s College of Professional Studies will expand to southern Indiana with the opening of a new office in New Albany in August.
The Indiana Tech location at 2441 State St. in New Albany will provide space for an admissions representative and a computer lab. Students will initially be enrolled in online courses. As the demand for on-site classes grows, classroom space will be added.
“There’s a tremendous need for nontraditional degree programs in this area,” said Steve Herendeen, vice president of the College of Professional Studies. “By focusing on delivering online programs first, we can begin to meet that need while we grow and learn which degree programs are best suited to classroom delivery in the Louisville area.”
The College of Professional Studies offers undergraduate and graduate programs in an accelerated format. The program is designed to accommodate nontraditional students who also have to balance work, family, and community responsibilities. Each course spans five or six weeks, allowing students to attend full-time without sacrificing other commitments. The online courses can be accessed any time, from anywhere a student has broadband Internet access.
Indiana Tech is a private university focused on career-oriented degree programs in high-demand fields such as accounting, business, criminal justice and leadership. The university’s main campus is in Fort Wayne, with satellite facilities in Elkhart, Fishers, Greenwood, Huntington, Indianapolis, Kendallville, Mishawaka, Munster, Plainfield, and Warsaw.
