The UofA recently added online degrees to include a Bachelor of Arts in Interdisciplinary Studies and a Master of Arts in Secondary Mathematics, said the vice provost for Distance Education. Some students take only one or two online classes while other degree programs require both online and classroom components. There are degrees, however, that can be earned exclusively online. Online classes at the UofA are offered through the Global Campus, said Robert Brady, director of interdisciplinary studies. “We have a reputation as a research university,” said Javier Reyes, vice provost for Distance Education. “To maintain that, we need to make sure that the students who are coming are high-caliber students. We must nurture the environment that gives that reputation for both on-campus and online courses.” The UofA offers more than 350 online degree programs and there is a 50 percent chance that any student at the UofA will take a course online, Reyes said.
