University of Oklahoma Centralizes Online Graduate Degree Programs

The University of Oklahoma has pulled together its online graduate degree programs under one central umbrella: OU Online. The new division will offer 33 programs, six of which are new for the fall semester.

"The University of Oklahoma has a strong tradition of serving learners across the globe through a number of highly acclaimed online graduate degree programs," explained OU President Joseph Harroz Jr., in a statement. "By uniting our efforts through OU Online, we can provide a more accessible path to world-class learning at the graduate level. We see online education as a true fulfillment of our purpose as a public research university — to develop strategic educational opportunities that benefit a more diverse segment of students and foster economic growth for our state."

Each program is developed by OU academic departments and faculty members, and taught by both tenured and adjunct faculty who are professionals in the field of study, according to the university. The programs are designed with flexibility in mind for working adults, and some can be completed in an accelerated format. Students in OU Online programs have access to the same academic and support services as on-campus students.

"By offering our students the scholarly insight of our exceptional faculty, the practical expertise of industry leaders and the undeniable quality of an OU education, the graduate programs delivered through OU Online prepare students to make an immediate impact in their own workplaces and communities," added Harroz.
