Why Neal Jones Chose the New Liberal Arts Online Program
This fall, JBU launched our newest degree program - Liberal Arts online. One of our first program students, Neal Jones, recently shared why he chose JBU:
After researching different universities, I chose John Brown University because of their Christian views and high academic standards. JBU is close to my home and not a far drive if I ever need to go to campus.
The online Liberal Arts program is the degree completion plan I chose. It will not only finish my four-year college education, but lead me into a better career.
The Liberal Arts program at JBU is a good choice for me because I am a non-traditional student. All of the classes are online and very convenient. I work full-time and can do my school work anytime throughout the week. The instructors have been wonderful with quick communication and clear expectations.
The Liberal Arts degree will help me gain a bachelor’s degree. Once I receive that, I plan to apply for the non-traditional licensure program to become a certified physical education teacher.
Above all, the program will challenge me and make me think outside the box. The work allows and requires me to incorporate God into my work. I believe I am now on the path God intended, and that’s why JBU is the right place for me.
