Caldwell University is a private, Catholic liberal arts university established in 1930 by the Sisters of St. Dominic. Caldwell offers top-ranking online degree programs that may be completed any time in any place by motivated individuals. Offered in accelerated seven- and eight-week sessions that run throughout the year, this schedule provides students with the opportunity to “fast-track” their coursework and graduation dates. Accelerated programs allow students to cover more course material over shorter periods of time and include intensive lesson plans with strict deadlines. These programs require that students possess excellent time management skills as well as the commitment and discipline necessary to successfully complete the program. Both undergraduate and graduate-level degrees are offered 100% online in areas including nursing, education, and business. It should be noted that these programs are available residents of all US states with the exception of California and Massachusetts.
