Working online ......

There is no software to buy or download. The majority of your writing, composing and spell checking will be done offline in programs such as Word or WordPerfect.  You create a flexible schedule, but must discuss your commitment with family and friends, reserving uninterrupted blocks of time for coursework in order to succeed.  A minimum of 10-15 hours is required each week to excel in each course. Online dialogue is very self-directed in graduate study, and as rigorous as traditional programs.  Read The Norms of Working Online.  Visit Are You Ready for Distance Learning?

There are both academic and technical prerequisites, as well as minimum equipment requirements. Please see the section entitled "Are you Qualified?" for further details.
