VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (AP) - Enrollment at the Christian university founded by televangelist Pat Robertson has reached 10,000 students.

Regent University says in a press release that growth has been fueled by new degrees, concentrations and certificate programs. Those include cyber security, marketing and healthcare.

The school has also increased its online degree programs to 110, both at the undergraduate and graduate levels. More new programs are planned for the Virginia Beach school.
