2 Texas Colleges Will Offer Competency-Based Hybrid Degree

Texas A&M University and South Texas College, in partnership with Pearson Education and funded by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, will offer competency-based hybrid degrees next spring. The program, known as the Texas Affordable Baccalaureate Program, will allow students to earn a degree in organizational leadership. The program requires students to complete a 90-hour online credit program that uses a competency-based curriculum. The sessions can be completed at the student's own pace and will cost less than $1,000.
