Doane College has added four bachelor degree programs at its Crete campus.

Doane is now offering engineering, graphic design, media communication and strategic communication.

Before adding the engineering degree, students could major in only engineering physics or enter a five-year track that required two years at another engineering college.

The communications majors replace Doane’s journalism and media program. The graphic design program was previously offered in the college for working adults and is now available for traditional students in Crete.
