You can earn your master's degree from UND while you continue to work. The entire Master of Science in in Elementary Education program is offered online; you are not required 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.
Opportunities for "Live" Web Classes
Depending on your instructor's preferences, some online 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
In this manner, the class lectures, discussion and collaboration are conducted in a very similar fashion to traditional on-campus classes.
Plus, if you miss a class, you may review the recorded class lectures and discussions that are accessed through the Internet at any time.
Interact in a Virtual Classroom
As an online student, you will also participate in many online 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
