When Spring Arbor University pioneered one-night-a-week programs for working adults back in the 1980s, it was the first college in the state of Michigan to do so. When the university launched its virtual classroom options this fall, it was that same passion for accessible education that prompted it to innovate again.
Beginning this fall, students are able to enroll in many of SAU’s bachelor and master programs via the “virtual classroom.” In contrast to online programs, where students have no face-to-face time with their instructors or site-based programs where students have to be in the same location every week, this modality enables students from across the state to log onto live video classes from the comfort of their home or office.
“We’re really excited about the chance to provide even greater access to our programs,” says Dr. Josh Wymore, Senior Executive Director of SAU Global. “As we strive to become the most relational and student-centered educational option for adult learners in Michigan, we think the virtual classroom gives us great tools to do that. It’s the perfect blend of flexibility and relationships for students that don’t want to sacrifice either when going back to school.”
Programs offered in the virtual classroom format include social work, nursing, management and business. Interested students can contact SAUadmissions@arbor.edu for more information.
