Johnson C. Smith University will create its first two online degree programs after receiving a $1.7 million grant from the Duke Endowment.
Degree programs in business administration and sport management will be offered online beginning with the 2015-16 school year, the school announced Monday. The programs are already offered on campus.
The effort is part of the Charlotte university’s push to expand academic offerings to nontraditional students.
Known as the Metropolitan College, their programs have graduated 39 adult students since 2009. Andrew Dunn
