SNHU Expands Degree Offerings to Latin America
Monday, March 1, 2021
As part of its ongoing efforts to expand access to high-quality, affordable education to learners around the world, Southern New Hampshire University (SNHU) has launched an initiative to offer its online degree programs in Latin America.
In many countries, higher education systems are limited by the number of students they can serve, depriving millions of the opportunity to pursue higher education. SNHU has a history of bringing online and innovative degree programs to students around the world, including offering programs in Vietnam, Rwanda, and Syria, and will continue this work with a focus on reaching learners in Mexico and Colombia.
As part of this expansion, SNHU will work with AVENU, a global education partner, to provide additional learner support. Founded by Southern New Hampshire University and the SEEK Group, AVENU works with universities to translate and localize the student experience, providing everything from admissions to coursework in the student’s native language. AVENU supports learners across a variety of programs including certificates, undergraduate, and graduate degrees.
SNHU was approved by its regional accreditor, the New England Commission of Higher Education (NECHE), to offer degree programs in Spanish in Latin America. The online degree programs offered in Spanish include: BS Business Administration, BS Marketing, BA Communication, and five master’s degree programs: MBA, MS Finance, MS Marketing, MS Project Management & Operations, and MA Communication.
These Spanish-language degree programs are not available to U.S. residents.
