Online Program Delivery
The Liberal Studies program at UW Oshkosh is offered completely online.
Online delivery at UW Oshkosh combines the best of both worlds--students get the flexibility they need with the same academic quality of our on-campus programs.
Courses are delivered through Desire 2 Learn (D2L). Students interact with their professors and classmates through online discussion, class lectures, and a drop box for assignments. In online courses there is no scheduled meeting time, but there are deadlines and due dates for projects, assignments and discussions.
Students get a full orientation and introduction to online learning in D2L before class begins, and UW Oshkosh provides academic and technology resources for students, faculty and staff.
