With the online BA in Communication program, you can earn your bachelor's degree from the University of North Dakota while you continue to live and work in your own community. The entire degree is offered online; you are notrequired to come to campus at any time.
Your transcript and diploma will look the same as for a student who graduated from UND by taking traditional, on-campus courses.
Interact in a Virtual Classroom
As an online student, you will participate in most class activities at the time and place of your choice. You will use Web-based tools to:
access course materials
communicate through message boards
participate in discussions through threaded discussion tools
receive your grades
Opportunities for Some "Live" Web Discussions
Some courses may have opportunities for class discussions or chat sessions that are conducted "live" over the Internet. In these "live" online classes, you may:
participate in "live" class discussions or chat sessions, which are held at set times that are convenient for most students
interact with your instructors and other students using Web-conferencing technology
see your instructors' materials as though you were sitting in a classroom on the UND campus
Plus, if you miss a class, you may review recorded classroom lectures and discussions that are accessed through the Internet at any time.
Internships provide you with practical experiences in career settings. These experiences allow you to apply the knowledge you gained through coursework to professional situations. You may complete internships at locations as close to your home community as possible.
