During his recent visit to the WGEL studio, Greenville College President Ivan Filby told us about some new online degree programs the college will be offering.
“We’ve started an online degree completion program in Health Psychology, which is exciting,” Filby said. “I was meeting with the governor recently and was talking to him about areas that the state is interested in and health care is one of those areas.
“By this time next year we hope to have another online degree in Criminal Justice up and running. In this part of Illinois we have a lot of correctional facilities, a lot of people involved in the police forces, working as sheriffs, and various areas of criminal justice.”
Filby said that in his talk with the governor, Quinn encouraged quality education in healthcare, science and technology, education and business in hopes of keeping jobs in Illinois.
