Students at Wright State University in Dayton, Ohio will have new options when classes resume in the Fall. The school recently announced the addition of two new bachelor’s degree programs: a Bachelor of Science in Engineering Technology and a Bachelor of Arts in Environmental Studies.

The addition of two new undergraduate degrees comes in response to high demand in several local industries. Students who elect the bachelor’s degree in engineering can tailor their studies to one of two available sub-fields: industrial and systems engineering or electrical engineering. Nontraditional students may find the program especially appealing since much of the required coursework can be completed online.

Wright State is also restructuring several of its other degree programs, including those in health science, exercise science, interdisciplinary studies, and agriculture.  As a result, students can now earn one of the following credentials:

  • Associate of Applied Science in Agriculture
  • Bachelor of Arts in Interdisciplinary Studies
  • Bachelor of Science in Interdisciplinary Studies
  • Bachelor of Science in Exercise Science
  • Bachelor of Science in Health Sciences

The bachelor’s degree in health sciences features five different concentrations, preparing students for allied health positions in physical therapy, occupational therapy, athletic training, physician assistance, and more.

U.S. News & World Report has ranked Wright State University among the top public schools in the nation. The school has also appeared in one of our recent CVO rankings, the 10 Most Affordable Commuter Colleges.
