Course Delivery Options

We offer three options: on campus, online, or hybrid. Outcomes are the same for each, and you’ll learn from the same distinguished faculty.

Here at Ball State, you don’t have to sacrifice quality to pursue a graduate certificate online. As a virtual learner, you’ll access the same quality coursework, discussions, and distinguished faculty as on-campus students.
If you prefer in-person interactions with your professors or peers, then pursuing your graduate certificate on campus is the right choice for you. You’ll also have access to numerous on-campus opportunities.
Our hybrid approach offers the best of both worlds—the convenience of online learning with the benefits of face-to-face interaction with instructors. You can work with your advisor to determine which courses to take online or on campus.
