Undergraduate Evening Studies Helps Adults Obtain Degree

Beth Crews is director of Furman's Undergraduate Evening Studies program.

According to data from the National Student Clearinghouse, the number of people over the age of 25 going to college to get their first undergraduate degree has dropped since 2012. Matthew Clark of GSA Business Report spoke to Undergraduate Evening Studies director Beth Crews. She said the numbers indicate people are more inclined to “bundle” their education by first achieving a certification, then an associate degree and, finally, a bachelor’s degree. “I’m trying to prepare people who want to transition into a new career or want to take the next step in their present career,” Crews said.
