Introducing: “Online Degrees @ DWU” Blog
Friday, January 10, 2014
I am happy to introduce Dakota Wesleyan University’s new blog: “Online Degrees @ DWU.”
Here we will:
- Share news and information about our new online programs;
- Introduce you to our online faculty;
- Share our student stories and their online learning experiences;
- Answer your questions about our online programs; and
- Address your concerns and help ease any anxiety you might have about online learning—or returning to school.
At DWU, we are excited about this online endeavor, which grew out of the accreditation process. When DWU was challenged to choose one new venture to deliver education in a different way, we knew offering online degrees was the route we wanted to go. We listened to the needs of our community and alumni in choosing to offer two fully online degree programs: The Master of Business Administration (M.B.A.) and the RN-Bachelor of Science nursing degree (RN-B.S.)
Through these programs, busy adults can earn their degrees while juggling families and careers so that they can take on leadership roles with their current employer—or move on to new career opportunities. They will build on their previous education—and will even earn credit for their work experience.
It has taken a tremendous team effort at DWU to bring these online degree offerings to fruition. In true DWU fashion, the team demonstrated how truly dedicated it is to enriching the student experience and making this transition as smooth as possible for students.
We are excited—about these new online degrees and about this blog. Through “Online Degrees @ DWU,” we want to engage in a conversation with you. If you have any questions or comments or just want to know what is going on at DWU in general, we invite you to share a comment.
If you are interested in our M.B.A. in Strategic Leadership, I invite you to register for one of our 30-minute M.B.A. Info Webinars. If you are interested in our RN-B.S., please contact us to request more information.
