SCSU online programs proliferating

Thursday, September 28, 2006

Changing lifestyles and technological innovations led SCSU to develop its online learning capabilities many years ago. Today the University offers more online courses than any public university outside the metro area, with 7 percent of all credits taken online.

An example is the university’s behavior analysis distance program, which has drawn attention from around the globe because students can earn a master’s degree – start to finish – without leaving their homes or jobs. The online offering was the world’s first when it was introduced five years ago. Today, students from 39 states, six Canadian provinces and six countries are enrolled.

Among the online degrees are criminal justice studies and driver education teacher preparation licensure, both of which are offered at the undergraduate and graduate levels, as well as a bachelor’s degree in aviation maintenance management. Students from as far away as Guam are "flying in" to earn the aviation degree, taking classes via the Internet and interacting with faculty and peers in a virtual classroom environment.
