University of St. Francis offers programs designed for adult students

          Businesses, hospitals, health care organizations, government and not-for-profit organizations need valuable leaders who can identify, promote and accomplish organizational goals and objectives.  Professionals can secure their futures and expand their career opportunities by earning a bachelor’s degree from a degree-completion program or graduate degree from the University of

St. Francis.

A national leader in offering educational opportunities to adult learners, the University of

St. Francis offers degree programs designed for working professionals. Learn more about University of St. Francis programs at informational meetings offered at Presence St. Joseph Medical Center. A USF representative will discuss educational programs at the following times:

 

  • Thursday, Jan. 31 from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Presence St. Joseph Medical Center, 333 Madison St., Joliet.  The open information sessions will be held in the Jazzman’s Cafe.
  • Wednesday, Feb. 20 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Presence St. Joseph Medical Center, 333 Madison St., Joliet.  The open information sessions will be held in the Jazzman’s Cafe.

Bachelor of Science degree-completion programs are offered in Nursing, Health Care Leadership, Management and Organizational Leadership.  These accelerated, online programs are for working adults who have associate’s degrees or equivalent college credits. The programs are designed for those who are in or seek to be in mid-level management positions and wish to strengthen their leadership skills and marketability.  Graduate degrees in Business (MBA) and Management, Health Administration, Training and Development and Nursing complement these bachelor degrees and are geared for those seeking upper mobility within their organization.

Students may take courses that meet one evening a week in a traditional classroom setting or take highly interactive online courses.
