Lifelong Learning Program
This program is designed for degree-seeking undergraduates who are at least 24 years old and who have full-time work or family responsibilities that prevent them from enrolling at the regular pace. To be considered for Lifelong Learning, you must be enrolled in 12 or fewer credit hours.
The Life Long Learning Program (LLL) offers course availability in both day and evening times. Evening courses may be offered two evenings per week for half the semester (Monday & Wednesday or Tuesday & Thursday) or one evening per week for the entire semester. For our Professional Organizational Development (POD) program, classes are offered one evening a week in 5 week increments.
There are two majors designed especially for LLL students:
Liberal Studies (B.A.) and Professional Organizational Development (POD) Program (B.S.).
The Liberal Studies major is unique to Lenoir-Rhyne in that students complete the LR core courses and a series of seminars especially related to the University's common learning goals. It also includes an experiential/service learning component. The Business Administration Professional Organizational Development degree provides adult learners with a general business degree and/or prepares them for completion of the MBA at Lenoir-Rhyne.
For those students wishing to complete a degree entirely in the evening, there are limited additional majors, such as Accounting, Birth-Kindergarten Education, Child & Family Intervention; and Gateway Nursing. However, the student who can take day or evening courses, may choose any of the majors that are offered by the University.
