Distance Learning

University College's two academic departments offer courses in hybrid and online environments as well as the traditional face-to-face environment to maximize learning opportunities for KSU's undergraduates. Students can take online or hybrid sections of first-year seminars and IT 2101 as well as Leadership Studies courses. The Leadership Studies certificate program can be completed entirely online. Whether students are web learners or just seeking the flexibility that hybrid sections offer, University College is committed to engaging them in a learning environment that meets their needs.
