Online & Blended Courses
The Distance Learning Program at SUNY Ulster provides a growing selection of fully online courses from departments across the curriculum and offersseveral fully online degrees:Independent Studies, Computer Science, Criminal Justice, Liberal Arts: Humanities and Social Sciences and two online certificate programs: Entrepreneurship and General Education. Online courses meet exclusively or almost exclusively in the online environment. They are often a good fit for students who need the flexibility to attend class on their own schedule and who are also self-motivated and possess the good organization skills needed to meet course deadlines and stay on track to successful course completion.
Blended or hybrid courses are another course delivery alternative for SUNY Ulster students. Students taking these courses spend part of their class time in a physical classroom and part of their class time online, working asynchronously anywhere they can access their course. This type of course combines the more structured environment of the traditional classroom with some of the flexibility offered by online courses.
