We have long had a conviction to meet students where they are. The goal of these new online programs is to better facilitate learning for all students, no matter where they live.
Saint Louis, MO (PRWEB) July 13, 2011
Missouri Baptist University will unveil three graduate programs and an undergraduate degree entirely online beginning next fall.
The University will offer students the option to complete the Master of Business Administration, the Master of Arts in Counseling (MAC), the Educational Specialist in Curriculum and Instruction and the Bachelor of Science in Sport Management completely online. Tuition for MBU's online programs is historically among the lowest in the St. Louis area.
Building on an already successful distance-learning program, the move is certain to provide students increased flexibility to pursue a degree while not sacrificing academic integrity.
"We have long had a conviction to meet students where they are," said Dr. Arlen Dykstra, MBU's provost and vice president of academic affairs. "The goal of these new online programs is to better facilitate learning for all students, no matter where they live or how busy they might be."
Currently, MBU offers nearly 100 courses online, in addition to the Master of Sport Management and Master of Science in Education in Curriculum and Instruction programs, which are both offered entirely online.
The University employs learning management company Blackboard to act as a University-wide platform for online learning. The platform can be accessed anywhere and at any time, so long as a student is able to connect to the Internet via a computer or smart phone.
