HAMBURG, N.Y. – Hilbert College’s recently launched Accelerated Degree Programs geared to adult learners and master-level programs offered in two high-demand fields will be discussed at an evening information session being held from 5:30-7:30 p.m. May 15 in Paczesny Hall’s West Herr Atrium.

Prospective students will learn about the college’s new Accelerated Degree Programs for adult learners who have already earned a minimum of 48 college credits and want to complete their undergraduate degree. Bachelor’s degrees are available in conflict studies and dispute resolution and also in organizational development. Students enrolled in either program with maximum allowable transfer credits can complete their degree in as little as 12 months.
The information session also will provide an overview of Hilbert’s master of science in criminal justice administration and master of public administration programs, which are designed to be completed in 18 months or less.
Faculty and staff will be on hand to answer questions about the ADP and graduate programs. Information will be available on financial aid options and tours provided of Hilbert’s Hamburg campus located at 5200 South Park Ave.
Advance registration is requested but not required to attend the information session, which is being hosted by Hilbert’s Center for Adult and Graduate Studies. To register, contact Kim Chiarmonte at 926-8948 or e-mail
