Distance Learning credit courses provide undergraduate and graduate students with flexibility and convenience by offering an alternative to the traditional face-to-face classroom delivery. While often referred to as 'online' courses, Bridgewater offers several distance learning options: Web only (100% online); Web-Based with some Lecture (80% online/20% face-to-face); Web-Hybrid (50% online/50% face-to-face) and video/DVD courses.
The main difference between a traditional face-to-face course and a distance learning course is the way instruction is delivered. Bridgewater's distance Learning courses are taught by our veteran faculty and instructors who, in most cases, teach both distance learning and traditional courses.
At Bridgewater, distance learning courses fall under the same tuition and fee guidelines as traditional courses.
Distance Learning courses are offered in the fall, spring, and summer semesters, as well as during intersession. Students register for courses in the same manner as traditional courses. Students enrolled in a degree program may register for distance learning classes when registration opens. Non-degree students (students who have not been formally accepted into a Bridgewater degree program) may register for distance learning classes once the non-degree registration period opens.
