Alderson Broaddus University will offer new bachelor’s degree programs in the Beckley, Fairmont, and Charleston areas this fall semester in conjunction with area community and technical colleges.


Criminal Justice, Health Care Management, and Interdisciplinary Studies programs will be convenient to students in southern, northern, and western West Virginia, according to Dr. Jim Owston, assistant provost for extended learning.

The programs will be offered at the campuses of BridgeValley Community and Technical College in South Charleston, New River Community and Technical College in Beaver, and Pierpont Community and Technical College’s Advanced Technology Center in Fairmont.

In addition to the three new degrees, registration will continue with the existing Bachelor of Science in Professional Leadership program, which began this June at Pierpont. Additional programs will be offered at all three locations in 2020.


“AB is pleased to have our community and technical college partners in this important initiative,” Owston said.

“Our degree completion programs provide associate program graduates and other working adults with some college credits the opportunity to complete a bachelor’s degree close to home.”

Evening classes begin on August 26 at all three locations.
