Distance Learning


Alternative Learning for Busy Students

CCBC offers a variety of courses that use various technologies to deliver instruction. Students can earn most of the credits for the following degrees through some form of distance education.

Business Administration A.A.
Business Law A.A.
Computer Science A.A.
Economics A.A.
General Studies A.A.
Psychology A.A.

Information Management
Business Software Applications (Mous Certification Preparation)

Distance Learning courses may use computers, the Internet, cable TV, video tapes, audio tapes, and other media. Some can be taken at home, while others require using media on campus. Some can be taken at classroom sites around the metropolitan area, which are linked in a videoconferencing network. They all include print materials, usually a text and a study guide. Each course is managed by a faculty member who provides a syllabus, holds review and discussion sessions, and serves as a learning resource for the course. Costs and credits are the same as for comparable on-campus courses, and students have access to the same services and activities as on-campus students.

Online Courses

All course materials are available through the Internet; textbooks may be ordered online through the CCBC Bookstore. Access to the instructor, as well as submission of assignments (except some tests) will be through the communication tools within the course.
