Online classes are similar to traditional college courses in many ways. You have a professor, textbooks, classmates, assignments, quizzes and tests. You earn a real degree from an accredited institution. The difference? Everything is done online. You are able to access lecture notes, reference material, and assignments where you want and when you want. UW-Whitewater offers online undergraduate and graduate programs in diverse areas - including business, liberal arts, and education - to fit your interests.
