Distance Education

A self-directed, liberating educational experience

Distance Education at Bloomsburg University provides an alternative method for learners to receive a high-quality education off campus with a flexible program that responds to the demands of a rapidly changing job market and shifting demographics. BU's distance education faculty incorporate the latest technologies into their courses to foster a rich learning environment, develop critical thinking skills that produce lifelong learners and help students grow into well-informed citizens.

"The graduate nursing instructors have a special understanding for what it takes to be a non-traditional student in a demanding profession. I love the recorded lectures on Wimba that I can download to my phone and re-play while I am commuting," — Roxann Shiber, student.
