Okanagan College has launched an Applied Bachelor of Arts: Community Research and Evaluation degree. Students in the four-year baccalaureate degree will develop skills in applied research and field experience, and graduates will be able to pursue a variety of careers in roles such as program administrators, analysts, or consulting.

Additionally, a partnership with the University of British Columbia Okanagan’s School of Social Work will guarantee 15 qualifying graduates of Okanagan’s Applied Bachelor of Arts to transition to UBCO’s Master of Social Work programs.

“This new degree is yet another example of how the College is responding with innovative programming that is training graduates to meet skills gaps and serve employers in our region’s communities and beyond,” said Okanagan President Jim Hamilton.
