Online learning platform, edX has launched three new MicroBachelors® programs to their portfolio of credit-backed, stackable credentials bringing the total number to five programs. MicroBachelors programs are created by edX in partnership with top colleges, universities and Fortune 1000 corporations to meet the real-world needs of employers while providing a pathway to a full Bachelor’s degree. The new programs are Professional Writing from Arizona State University, Marketing Essentials from Doane University, and Elements of Data Science from Rice University. These join the currently available programs in IT Career Framework from Western Governors University (WGU) and Computer Science Fundamentals from New York University (NYU). All programs are approved, or pending approval, for credit by Thomas Edison State University (TESU). With the education and employment disruptions brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic, MicroBachelors programs provide an opportunity for those impacted to gain immediately transferable skills to secure a new job, or gain academic credit that stacks towards a Bachelor’s degree for those who are having to delay or reexamine their college plans.
