The School of New and Continuing Studies offers two B.A. programs for working adults. The Digital Technology and Cultures B.A. is a liberal arts degree for the 21st century, combining critical cultural studies with practical technology skills. Our Organizational Leadership B.A. degree integrates skills in leadership and organizational management and links leadership theory to everyday operational practices. Students in the baccalaureate programs may also take courses from NCS's innovative Web Development Certificate Program.
Flexible. Affordable. Quality.
Both of these degrees are designed especially for busy working adults, providing students with flexible delivery, affordable cost, and Seattle University's exceptional academic quality.
Flexible Accelerated Delivery
All of our courses are ten weeks long and offered in hybrid format, which provides students with the best features of online delivery and face-to-face teaching. NCS also has a rolling admissions policy, so students can apply, be admitted, and begin their studies year-round.
At $400 per credit hour, NCS courses are affordable and eligible for Federal Student Aid (including federal student loans and Pell grants) and full VA educational benefits. NCS also offers credit for prior learning experience gained through previous courses, military and corporate training, and proficiency tests.
