Many of courses that comprise the degree program are offered through a cooperative development and delivery model among public universities in Tennessee. The model provides a platform for these institutions to share valuable intellectual resources which enrich program offerings.
As an online student, you gain access to highly-qualified faculty from both the campus where you are studying to earn your degree as well as other institutions across the state. You gain exposure to a wide range of opinions, philosophies, perspectives and experiences that you might not otherwise obtain. The students in your classes are also from other institutions across the state which further contributes to a unique online learning experience.
This program is ideally suited for adult students who have completed an associate's degree or those who have earned a substantial number of college credits from other institutions and are interested in completing their degree.
