|ONLINE DEGREE PROGRAMS|
The Communication Department offers online courses leading to both undergraduate and graduate generalist degrees. The Bachelor of Science and the Bachelor of Arts each consist of 130 hours, with 40 in Communication. The Master of Science consists of 31 hours.
A degree in Communication helps students develop a variety of academic, performance, and professional competencies. Graduates will be prepared for fields such as business, law, public relations, ministry, mass communication, government, education and industry.
Students take classes on a schedule that mirrors the traditional school year. Each fall and spring semester consists of two terms and each summer consists of one term. Students may take up to nine hours per term and up to 45 hours in one calendar year.
ONLINE COMMUNICATION STUDENT ORIENTATION
Each online student must successfully complete an online student orientation within the allotted time frame at the beginning of each online course. This orientation introduces the department’s expectations of the online student using an instructional video and online quiz.
Students must use their college-issued email address and password to access this orientation. Links to this orientation can be found at the top of each online course. After watching the video and successfully completing the quiz, students will be required to acknowledge an understanding of departmental expectations. Instructors will be notified when students successfully complete this orientation.
Completing the orientation will count ten percent (10%) toward the student's overall grade for the course. Students who do not successfully complete the orientation within the allotted time frame will receive a grade of zero (0) for that 10% allocation. Mathematically, therefore, a student receiving a grade of zero (0) on the orientation can receive a grade no higher than 90 for the course.
Students must complete the orientation for each class in which the student is enrolled since departmental expectations may be revised from time to time.
