Liberty University adds two aeronautics degrees to curriculum

Local News

LYNCHBURG, Va. (WFXR) – Liberty University’s School of Aeronautics has added two degrees to its growing offerings for students with an interest in aviation.

The degrees include a Master of Science (M.S.) in Aeronautics and a Bachelor of Science (B.S.) in Aviation Management.

Both programs begin this fall and are available through Liberty University’s online programs.

“The M.S. program is for students who are currently working in aviation and even aviation enthusiasts who want to keep their feet on the ground and not fly. The program is also ideal for students who value an education with biblical principles.”

Dr. Julie Speakes, Liberty University Online Dean

Entrance into the M.S. degree program does not require flight credentials, licenses, prerequisites, or an undergraduate degree in an aviation-related field.

Students seeking a career in aviation management or administration will benefit from the Aviation Leadership specialization to prepare them to manage the unique challenges in aviation.

The M.S. in Aeronautics classes are offered in eight-week sessions. The 30-credit hour program can be completed in approximately one academic year.

The new B.S. in Aviation Management provides students with a well-rounded education that covers many aspects of aviation and, like the M.S. degree, is a non-flight degree program which is an option for pilots who may have lost their required FAA medical certification.
