Pacific Oaks Distance Learning, offering classes online, enrolls students nationwide and around the world. Most online classes last for 10-12 weeks in fall and spring semesters; 4-week modules are scheduled in September, January, and April through July. More than 20 classes are offered online each semester, with a smaller selection in summer session. These classes are the same as those offered on campus. The distance program, designed for part-time students, leads to the B.A. or M.A. in Human Development or to the postgraduate certificate.
Degree programs are planned to include at least two face-to-face classes (6 units), for a minimum of two weeks during the student's program. Scheduling of these classes is flexible. Pacific Oaks' alternate time frames and locations enable students at any distance to plan individualized degree programs. Classes are available on weekends (meeting monthly) and as weeklongs at all sites. The Pasadena campus offers weeklong, weekday and weekend classes during the six-week summer sesssion as well as fall and spring semesters.
Computer-mediated instruction is available to Pacific Oaks students at any distance. Students log on at any time of day or night. An orientation to Pacific Oaks online is required of all new online students.
With advisor approval, a Pacific Oaks student's degree program may include study at another member college of the national Early Childhood Consortium.
