PHILIPPI — May 22, 2019—Alderson Broaddus University, in conjunction with Pierpont Community and Technical College, will be offering a new bachelor’s degree program in Fairmont.

The Bachelor of Science in professional leadership is a degree completion program geared towards community and technical college graduates and working adults who have some college experience, but do not yet have a four-year degree.  

“This program provides students with marketable skills to take their careers to the next level,” said Dr. Jim Owston, assistant provost for extended learning. “The Bachelor of Science in professional leadership will assist you in your personal growth to become a leader, allow you to manage change, provide you with the skills to brand yourself, and aid you in dealing with others professionally and personally.”

Classes begin June 10 and will be held in the evening at Pierpont’s Advanced Technology Center. To find out more, Alderson Broaddus and Pierpont invite you to a reception at Muriale’s Italian Kitchen in Fairmont on Tuesday, May 28, 2019, from 6:00 to 9:00 PM. Come anytime during these three hours and enjoy a complimentary meal and talk to representatives about this and other bachelor’s degree programs to be offered on the Pierpont campus.
