Employers continue to seek prospective employees with degrees, both at the bachelor’s level and advanced. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, there will be a 12.1 percent increase in jobs requiring a bachelor’s degree between 2012 and 2022. Jobs typically requiring a doctorate or a professional degree for entry is projected to increase by 20 percent between 2010 and 2020. UT Tyler’s undergraduate online-only programs are the University College’s Bachelor of Applied Arts and Sciences (BAAS) degree completion program and the nursing RN-BSN-Mobility in Nursing Education (MINE) degree from the college of nursing and health sciences. “We’re getting students in their 30s. They might never have finished. These are students who have families, are working full time and doing their classwork at night. For the military, we’re able to count some work experience and are flexible with hours from other facilities,” he said.
