Marymount in Reston Marymount University, which closed its campus in Sterling in the summer, plans to open a branch in Reston in May for residents and workers in Loudoun and western Fairfax counties. The campus, 1861 Wiehle Ave., will have eight classrooms, a computer lab, a student lounge and administrative offices.
Several graduate business courses will be offered this summer. In the fall, graduate programs will include a master's degree in human resource management; an evening and Saturday MBA program; a master's of education in a Friday evening and Saturday format; a graduate certificate in project management; and post-baccalaureate certificates in computer science and information technology.
At the undergraduate level, the Reston campus will offer several options for students who have about two years of college credit and want to complete a bachelor's degree.
"In Reston, we'll be focusing on meeting the educational needs of adult learners with programs and formats that fit their professional requirements and schedules," said Donald Shandler, Marymount's assistant vice president for graduate and adult education.
