WEST LIBERTY, W.Va.

West Liberty University has announced two new programs for students.

Leaders say it's part of the plan to improve and expand the college.

These two degrees -- Master of Arts in Biology and Master of Science in Biology will start in the fall.

Applications for the new degrees are being accepted for the fall 2017 launch of the programs.

Leaders say they are now the only small college in West Virginia to offer these masters degrees.

"We also have a 3 plus 2, meaning a BACC and masters, so an undergraduate can enroll and leave with a BACC and masters in Biology, said Joseph Horzempa, Biology professor at WLU.

There have been fantastic changes and improvements here, particularly in academics, and we aren't going to stop, WLU President Stephen Greiner said. We want to add programs that make sense for our region and employment in this region.

West liberty says the MS in Biology often leads to jobs such as research technicians for the pharmaceutical industry or academic labs, environmental consulting work, or entry into doctoral programs.

The MA prepares students for professional schools such as dental or medical school.

Undergrads in biology or related fields can apply, and the general admission requirements are here.
