Major requirements

Online Learning

You’ll interact with your classmates through group activities. This will involve coordinating and working with several other learners who may be dispersed across different regions. Most online courses will ask that you spend time participating in online discussions with the instructor and other learners. These discussions will play a central role in your learning experience.

Online Course Experience

I do have to emphasize that the staff, faculty, anyone and everyone that I have contacted at Binghamton University has been wonderful! Everyone has been extremely helpful and very understanding.

I chose Decker’s online program because Binghamton University is well respected within the education world, and it is a much more affordable option compared to other programs.
