Changes Coming to Salem College

Salem College,in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, is offering its first online degree program. The women’s college will offer a master of education degree in school counseling, beginning this fall. In addition to online classes, students will participate in internship programs and participate in two weekend seminars on the Salem College campus. Students are expected to complete the online degree program in three years.

Salem College is also planning to expand its 60-acre campus. It is negotiating with the city to buy a 25-acre plot that is used as a parking lot for city trucks and heavy equipment. The college hopes to build new dormitories, add athletic fields, and construct new laboratories and a conference center. The latest new construction on the Salem College campus was completed in 1964. “We are completely out of space on our current historic campus and have no land available to construct new buildings,” Susan E. Pauly, president of Salem College, said in a statement.  “We’re certainly not going to tear down our historic buildings to make room for new ones.”
