National University: Global Education

Like so many other areas of our lives, technology has changed the way we learn - online learning is an example of this. It wasnít long ago that the thought of earning a degree online was considered to be on the cutting edge. Today, it has become a widely-accepted method of reaching students who have grown increasingly more reliant upon the Internet.

National University was among the first institutions of higher education to recognize and focus on the unique needs of working adults going back to school. One of those needs was the ability of students to take classes while simultaneously balancing the competing demands of their personal and professional lives. Nationalís unique one-course-per-month format and online degrees combine to create the perfect fit for those seeking a convenient and accessible option in quality higher education.

As a pioneer and leader in online education, National offers a variety of programs and courses via the Internet which provide students with an interactive learning environment and access to a high-quality and accredited degree. Nationalís 35 online degree programs incorporate the latest advances in technology to provide a dynamic, interactive learning environment via the Internet, 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Online faculty members are available to students every day, monitoring and participating in classroom discussions and interacting with students via e-mail and threaded discussions.

Founded in 1971 to provide a diverse population of students with access to quality lifelong learning opportunities, National University has grown into the second-largest, private, nonprofit institution of higher learning in California by keeping its programs relevant, accessible, affordable, and of high academic quality.

National University has expanded its presence beyond the borders of the United States. Students from more than 75 countries participate in the universityís online offerings. Their global perspectives enhance the education experience of all of the universityís students.

National University has global educational agreements with distinguished universities and organizations throughout Europe, South and Central America, and Asia. National also is one of the few universities in the United States to offer an Executive MBA program in Spanish completely online.

State-of-the-art technology in the classroom and beyond allows students to access their current grades, class schedules, and financial information online. E-mail and the Internet are integrated into classroom instruction, and Internet access is available from any of the computers in the universityís networked labs.

The National University Library offers research assistance and access to one of the largest e-book collections in the United States. All library services, materials, collections, and electronic information are accessible remotely at any time of the day or night.

All of the degree programs and teaching credentials at National University are accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC), which accredits institutions of higher learning throughout California and the Western United States.
