Monroe College has expanded its distance learning program so that it is now possible for students to earn college degrees one block, one mile, or one thousand miles away from the college’s Bronx, NY or New Rochelle, NY campuses. Monroe College Distance Learning (MCDL) students can select from seventy Internet courses and, for the first time, be able to obtain a Monroe B.B.A. or A.A.S. degree entirely online.
Along with the immeasurable convenience of taking courses from literally anywhere in the world and personalizing your schedule, MCDL students are treated like other Monroe students: with personal service and individual attention.
“That’s what makes Monroe’s distance learning program distinctive,” said Vice President for Academics, Dr. Stephen Waldow. “The personal touch we’re noted for is available for students who learn online. They get one-on-one support all the way from the admissions process right through job placement.”
The MCDL program includes courses in English and the social sciences, criminal justice, accounting, computer information systems, business technologies, hospitality management and the culinary arts, mathematics, business administration, and health services administration. Students can study through “blended learning”, where some of their classes are online, or, for the first time at Monroe, they can study completely on the Internet.
“MCDL is designed for working people who want to get a degree but need to work in their own time and place,” according to Director of Marketing Evan Jerome. “The program is custom-made for people with family responsibilities. MCDL gives everyone a chance for a college education.”
Powered by state-of-the art web-based technology, MCDL features live chats, active Internet bulletin boards, and user-friendly Internet communication tools that keep students in constant touch with their professors.
