Learn about Liberty University’s Online Programs Delivery Formats
Liberty University offers online degree programs created to give students across the globe the same world-class Christian education our residential students receive. As one of the top online universities, our online programs were created to offer students the opportunity to achieve their educational goals wherever they may be located. Liberty University offers online degree programs in three different delivery formats: 100% Online, Optional Intensive, and Required Intensive-Based.
Format for Online Courses
Courses are delivered in an online classroom environment that is flexible, personal, and academically stimulating for students. Liberty University uses Blackboard as the learning platform for students to complete assignments and communicate with their professor and peers. This flexible learning format allows students to complete coursework on their schedule, as there are no set login times. Through the online format, a student can complete a program entirely online.
Online Programs with Required Intensives
While the majority of Liberty University’s online degree programs are available completely online, some programs will require you to come to Liberty’s campus in Lynchburg, VA – typically for just one week at a time – to attend class in an intensive format. For additional convenience, our education students also have the opportunity to attend in a weekend format, if they prefer. You have the opportunity to complete in-depth studies of various theories and research methods associated with your area of study as well as network with your professor and peers from across the country and world!
Additionally, many of Liberty University’s online degree programs allow students to pursue licensure within their states. Whether it is for initial teaching licensure, professional counseling licensure, or one of the many other opportunities, we want to make sure you are prepared in every way possible!
Degree programs that offer optional intensives mean that you can complete your degree completely online, but have the opportunity to take some courses in an intensive format on-campus in Lynchburg, VA. Attending a course on-campus will give you a unique experience to participate in research opportunities and develop close relationships with peers, mentors, and faculty. While they might not be required for some degrees, if you have the opportunity to take advantage of an intensive, we encourage you to do so.
