KU Edwards Welcomes KC Degrees and KC Scholars Students
You have goals for your career. A KU bachelor's degree is the credential you need to achieve those goals. KU Edwards Campus is here to help you earn a certificate, bachelor’s degree or finish the degree you started, with the help of KC Scholars and KC Careers.
By 2020, more than 65 percent of jobs will require more than a high school diploma. However, Kansas City doesn't have enough high school graduates entering college and completing their bachelor's degree to meet this growing need. In addition, more than 300,000 adults in the Kansas City region have earned some college credit, but never completed a bachelor's degree. Though some are employed, many are underemployed because they don't have the credentials needed to advance their careers.
KU Edwards Campus is dedicated to helping working professionals finish their degree by offering late afternoon and evening courses. Choose from 10 KU undergraduate completion programs and certificates:
• Accounting Certificate
• Business Administration
• Exercise Science
• Information Technology
• Law and Society
• Literature, Language and Writing
• Molecular Biosciences
• Public Administration
• Social Work
By partnering with KC Degrees and KC Scholars, you will have the opportunity to earn and finish the credentials needed to ensure you are successful in the workforce. The KU Edwards Campus has contributed more than $400 million to the Johnson County economy since it opened its doors in 1993. Earning a college degree is proven to lead to more job choices, higher earnings, less likelihood of unemployment and opportunities for promotion. Our current students have already experienced a valuable return on investment.
