Saint Leo University is now able to offer fully online degree programs in Spanish thanks to a new partnership with global education services partner AVENU Learning. In the first year, eight degree programs—designed by Saint Leo University instructors—will only be available to prospective students in Latin America, and U.S. residents are not eligible to apply.
The Spanish language programs will include bachelor’s degrees in the following areas of study:
Human resource management
Computer information systems
Health care administration
In Fall 2021, the partnership will expand to include three master’s degrees:
The student experience—from recruitment and admissions to the university’s coursework—will be translated and localized by AVENU Learning to provide a quality learning experience in the student’s native language. Even the instructors will be native Spanish speakers, many living in Latin American countries.
AVENU Learning will oversee the full operation and delivery of the programs, with oversight from Saint Leo University faculty and staff. The end result of this effort is that a student’s language no longer has to be a barrier to receiving a quality education from a regionally accredited, nonprofit Catholic university.
