Christian Brothers University (CBU) is coming to Collierville to serve the needs of adult learners out east. Starting January 2013, students will be able to take classes at a satellite location – the Collierville Chamber of Commerce at 485 Halle Park Drive in Collierville. This new location will cut down travel time and increase the time that can be dedicated to learning for those who live and/or work in the Collierville area.
In announcing this new location, Dr. John Smarrelli, President of the University stated, “As an active partner in the Mid-South community, CBU is dedicated to quality education for everyone. With the Collierville site, CBU is responding to the educational needs of our adult learners who wish to advance their careers without having to commute to our Midtown campus.”
Being offered at this new location is the Bachelor of Arts in Business which is taught in cohort, where students stay with the same classmates for all their coursework and thus become part of a learning community. In addition, the Bachelor of Arts in Applied Psychology with concentrations in Criminal Justice, Organizational Psychology and Consumer Behavior is being offered. Other course options include Business Communications, Project Management and Leadership.
Classes are specifically designed to meet the needs of adult learners, and CBU offers the possibility of receiving academic credit for prior learning experience. CBU’s dedicated academic advisers are available to help put together a convenient schedule that meets individual learning goals while accommodating the busy schedules of working adults. In addition, CBU provides a personal approach to education with small class sizes, dedicated faculty and academic advisors, and a practical curriculum with built-in opportunities for personal and professional development.
