If one of your goals for this year is to go back to school—to earn your undergraduate degree, further your studies with a graduate degree, or make a career change—look no further than Johnson & Wales University’s College of Online Education!
Here are five reasons to choose JWU Online, in case you need a little boost:
1. Our online model was designed for busy professionals.
Through the College of Online Education, JWU offers all of the benefits of a face-to-face education while also allowing students the opportunity to satisfy their other obligations. With an online degree program, you’ll never have to come to campus but you’ll still receive a reputable JWU education. While the online method might be different from a traditional “college” classroom, the content is just as rigorous and engaging, and it allows you the freedom to study wherever, whenever.
2. Our classes are taught by real professors.
Online courses at JWU don’t skimp on the faculty talent. As of September 2018, more than half of the faculty members teaching online were also employed full-time by the university at one of the campuses. The College of Online Education also recruits and hires adjunct faculty members with advanced degrees and years of experience teaching online. All JWU professors are industry experts with years of professional experience, and they bring their career lessons into the online classroom to share with students.
3. We offer a broad range of academic programs.
With online undergraduate and graduate degree programs in arts and sciences, business, health sciences, hospitality, human resources, nonprofit management, and criminal justice, there’s truly something for everyone. Currently, the college offers more than 100 fully online degree programs.
4. Personalized resources help students stay on track.
All resources available to students at JWU branch campuses are also offered to students studying online. We’re talking about library help, career services, technical support, campus bookstores—everything! In addition, online students are assigned a dedicated academic advisor who works exclusively for the College of Online Education. They will be dedicated to keeping you on track and will be on hand to answer any questions you have. Online students will also have access to our Student Writing Support Specialist for everything from writing help and note-taking to understanding assignment directions. Really, we have everything you need to feel comfortable in the online classroom!
5. Our reputation precedes us.
For more than 100 years, Johnson & Wales University has been working to support students in their professional success. An industry leader, the university is an accredited and career-focused institution, with the goal of helping students achieve their professional and educational goals. In the online classroom, we go the distance to provide online students with the same experiential education opportunities that are offered to campus students.
