You could earn your bachelor's degree in 3 intensive semesters!
Here is how:
Most students starting in our online Organizational Leadership and Learning program have an associate degree or equivalent credit hours (minimum of 40 credits) that can be applied to the bachelor’s degree. By completing the Prior Learning Assessment (course ELFH 300), students earn up to 48 hours tuition-free credit that also counts toward the total credit requirements of the degree. The remaining 35 credit hours are the core courses (or concentration track) required for graduation. This structure allows students to graduate with their bachelor’s degree within 18 months (3 intensive semesters).
The Organizational Leadership and Learning undergraduate program features three concentrations that help students enhance their skills in leadership, organizational change, workplace development and performance. Students will explore new concepts and design hands-on projects while in the program.
- Leadership and Organizational Development
- Training and Development
- Career & Technical Education
- Healthcare Leadership (competency-based education)
KCTCS Credit Transfer
Students may complete general education requirements through the Kentucky Community and Technical College System (KCTCS) online or in the classroom then transfer to the University of Louisville to complete their bachelor’s degree. UofL Academic Advisers are available to assist with your degree planning.
Credit for Prior Learning
In the first major course, ELFH 300 Prior Learning Assessment, students evaluate and document their learning from work experiences, existing course credits and associate degrees, technical and specialized training to receive credit for the specialization. They may earn up to 48 credit hours in the specialization component at no cost (equivalent of 16 courses). Students then proceed to the remaining courses in the designated concentration.
Graduates of this program are employed in training development, instructional design, human resource and workforce development roles. The program prepares them to be instructors in their specialization area, developers of performance improvement interventions, leaders and evaluators of human resource projects.
Program graduates have built successful careers as group coordinators, leaders, insurance sales agents, plant and mid-level managers, and supervisors.
The number of jobs for individuals with a bachelor's degree in organizational leadership, is expected to grow 13% between 2010 and 2020.
