Enrollment Under Way for Park University’s Fall 2014 Session

Tuesday, August 5, 2014


Enrollment is under way for the Fall 2014 semester at Park University. Classes begin Monday, Aug. 18.

Founded in 1875, Park University has a history of giving students from diverse backgrounds access to an affordable, private university education. From arts and science to business and education programs, Park offers a variety of accredited undergraduate and graduate degree programs. The University’s online learning programs attest to Park’s ongoing commitment to provide access to quality education for everyone.

Part of Park’s Promise is expanding current curriculums and integrating new degree programs for its students. This year, Park will begin to offer the Bachelor of Science in Military History, a degree that will combine Park’s liberal arts foundation with in-depth study of military-related events that have shaped the world in which we live today.

“Park University has endeavored to serve its military students, both active military and veterans, by providing degree programs that fit their goals and needs regardless of the students’ location,” said Debra Sheffer, Ph.D., associate professor and program coordinator of history. “The military history degree is significant because it offers students a degree many have requested in the past, one that enhances their career path.”

Park accepts transfer credits for military and veterans and is ranked highly by several esteemed military education publications, including Military Advanced Education, Military Times and G.I. Jobs.

Also new this year is Park’s Master of Social Work program, which was granted full candidacy accreditation status through the Council on Social Work Education and officially launched in June 2014.

Park serves traditional and non-traditional students in day, weekend and evening programs. Classes at Park’s campus centers across the country and online are offered in traditional 16-week, as well as the accelerated eight-week sessions. Park has 40 campus centers across the country and online, including the University’s flagship campus at its historic site in Parkville. Park’s School for Graduate and Professional Studies is based in downtown Kansas City, Mo.
