About the Online College

Brenau's goal is to be a leader in the development and provision of quality online programs using the latest distance learning technology. The university’s online programs, first offered in 1998, were developed to serve a constituency of students with life constraints preventing them from attending campus-based classes. Degree programs provide maximum flexibility without compromising learning outcomes or academic rigor.

Online classes are delivered via the Internet using the popular Blackboard © course management system. Other common software programs are also used to enhance the delivery of course materials. Dialogue among students, using an asynchronous bulletin board system, is central to the collaborative process. Online students bring with them varied life and work experiences that, when shared in the virtual classroom, provide relevant applications of theory to real world situations.

About Brenau University

The University's three colleges, the Online College, the coeducational Evening and Weekend College (EWC), and the Women's College, have unique yet complementary missions.

The Online College serves a population of students who are unable or unwilling to attend campus-based classes. Degree and certificate programs are offered entirely online, with a focus on collaborative learning. The EWC serves a growing population of working adult men and women by offering degree and certificate programs and classes in five locations across the state (Atlanta, Augusta, Gainesville, Kings Bay, and Waleska) and online.
