Beckfield College launches new programs; includes Diagnostic Medical Sonography associate degree – Northern Kentucky Tribune
Beckfield College is launching two new programs this fall in response to growing demand in the Greater Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky area.
The college will be offering a two-year associate degree in Diagnostic Medical Sonography and a 12-month Medical Massage Therapy diploma program. Applications are being accepted now for the Sept. 29 start.
The College responded quickly to the COVID-19 pandemic by shifting didactic classes to online platforms – something the school was well geared as they have been offering online classes for many years. The College also moved their Admissions and Financial Aid teams to work virtually and assist potential students who are looking to further their education. The College has seen an increase in prospective students because they were laid off due to COVID-19 and are looking for essential healthcare careers.
“During times of economic and employment crisis, we offer our students training for industries and professions that typically withstand a downturn,” said Diane Wolfer, President of Beckfield College. “Our career-oriented programs include nursing, healthcare and medical massage therapy.”
