Online degree programs allow you to earn a degree or certificate in an entirely distance learning modality, that you can complete from home, office, or anywhere you can find an internet connection. The New York State Department of Education (NYSED) has approved our first degree to be taught completely online. The Associate of Arts degree in Liberal Arts and Sciences will be available online even in non-pandemic conditions.
Eventually the goal is to have online degrees available from every department.
Degrees and Certificates Offered
The number of professionals who regularly work from home has increased 159 percent over the last decade, with more than 4.7 million employees working remotely at least half the time.
It’s clear, then, that learning online helps prepare professionals for this shift toward online work.
Online degree programs require just as much work as in-person modality and the amount of time you dedicate is also about the same. However, the online format—just as a virtual workplace—affords you more flexibility. As long as you meet your deadlines and communicate with your instructor and peers, it doesn’t matter where or when you fulfill the requirements.
Additional Benefits of Online Modality include:
- Added Flexibility and Self-Paced Learning
- Learn Better Time Management
- Improved Virtual Communication and Collaboration
- Refined Critical-thinking Skills
- New Technical Skills
