PHILIPPI, W.Va. – Alderson Broaddus University, in conjunction with local community and technical colleges, will be offering new bachelor’s degree programs in the Charleston, Beckley and Fairmont areas.

Beginning with the fall semester, Alderson Broaddus’ Criminal Justice, Health Care Management and Interdisciplinary Studies degree completion programs will be taught at the campuses of BridgeValley Community and Technical College in South Charleston, New River Community and Technical College in Beaver and Pierpont Community and Technical College’s Advanced Technology Center in Fairmont.
