St. Clairsville -- Belmont College will be hosting an informational session for current students and alumni about the college's new 2+2 programs with The University of Akron. The session will take place on Tuesday, June 20 from 6 8 p.m. at the Main Campus location in St. Clairsville, Ohio.

The following 2+2 degree programs will be discussed:

Bachelor of Organizational Supervision (BOS) The BOS degree is a unique program, specifically designed for those who hold an associate's degree or have completed college courses totaling 60 credit hours or more. The BOS degree will help strengthen organizational leadership and supervisory skills so that you can take on more responsibility, regardless of the field.

Bachelor of Science in Emergency Management and Homeland Security (EMHS) The EMHS degree is a step-up degree for students who have completed a minimum of 60 semester hours in subjects including, but not limited to, fire protection, criminal justice, community services, environmental health and safety, or other related areas to the field of emergency management. Students learn specific and applicable skills to properly manage the system of disasters through a four-phase approach. This profession continues to grow as disasters and major emergencies become more frequent and costly, and as response continues to become more complex.

Belmont College's 2+2 programs, developed in partnership with The University of Akron, provide a seamless transition. Through the program, students can earn both an associate degree and a bachelor's degree in four years by transferring from Belmont College to Akron.
