Understanding Online Programs

Students have the option of taking all courses online or in a classroom, with the exception of practica, internships and field experiences which must be done in a local school setting or facility. 

Online courses give students the opportunity to complete work at their own pace, meaning they must have the self-discipline and self-motivation to start and finish assignments on their own.

Professors will still be available to help of course, and online students should not hesitate to reach out via email or online discussion boards with any questions.
