Lee Online is also adding a new bachelor's degree in human services starting in the fall of 2021. The program is offered with a choice of two emphasis areas: gerontology or addictions.


"If you find passion in assisting individuals and communities to function as effectively as possible, then a human services degree is a great option for you," said Wienk. "It really is about learning how to help people better."

Scholarships will be applied evenly over the first academic year (three semesters) of enrollment and cannot be stacked with other Lee Online promotions or scholarships.

The Self-Leadership course is a study of self-leadership characteristics and skills that apply to effective leadership. Various personal inventories, self and group assessments, along with personal reflection, will be included to examine each student's present and future self-leadership potential.

Introduction to Christian Leadership is a survey of leadership principles and ideas offered to provide a sound basis for effective ministry. Attention will be given to contemporary models of ministry leadership that have been successful in the contemporary cultural environment.


Courses are flexible, fully online, and fully asynchronous over a seven-week session. They are 3-credit-hours and can be applied to an online undergraduate degree. Multiple start dates are available, but to take advantage of the offer, interested individuals must apply as non-degree seeking online students at with the discount code FIRST (case-sensitive) and start their program no later than August 24.
