This online degree offers short presentations and lectures online, supplemented by assignments and readings. Students participate in discussion board conversations with professors and fellow students, and communicate with professors through email and online office hours.
While this degree allows students the convenience of accessing course material when and where it is most convenient for you, it definitely requires a commitment of time and attention. Students should plan to spend nine to twelve hours per week on a 3-credit course. Time required will vary depending on students' learning style and previous coursework.
Completing the courses toward the degree is self-paced and self-directed; students' timelines of completion will be influenced by their personal responsibilities and career commitments, as well as the schedule of course offerings. The program can be completed in two years, and the University requires that degree coursework be completed within 10 years.
