Online Degree Completion Program B.A. in Liberal Arts
More about our Online Philosophy
The B.A. in Liberal Arts Online Degree Completion Program facilitates access to undergraduate degree completion for students with a previous history of Fresno State academic success, but have “stopped out” of the university for at least three years. Research in online learning suggests that students who have already been successful in face-to-face courses are far more likely to be successful in online courses – they are proven, college learners! Additionally, adult learners – most returning students – experience more success in online learning than traditional-age students. This program's fully online delivery mode provides affordable, public university access for former Fresno State students who just aren't able to complete a degree through a traditional state-supported face-to-face program.
Our courses are taught by experienced, long-term university instructors who are experts in their fields – the same instructors who teach in Fresno State traditional programs. Every instructor is online-certified, with training and experience in online education. The courses are based in active learning strategies – discussion, projects, problem-based learning, and group learning. Instructors use a variety of online tools to make courses engaging: video, audio, discussion forums, interactive media software.
