Distance Education at North Carolina State University was created to reach students wherever they are and whatever their life circumstances may be. Flexibility is the hallmark of the program and the degrees offered are identical to residential programs. With hundreds of courses available in dozens of degree programs, NC State’s online options are wide-ranging. Undergraduate and graduate programs range from agricultural and biology disciplines to business, engineering, technology and the social sciences. NCSU offers undergraduate and graduate certificates, licensure and doctorates as well. Accessibility is a key component to the online experience; NCSU boasts a robust support network including library access, academic services, bookstores, career services, IT help and the “MyPack Portal” for local social media. The online and distance education coursework engages students in solving real-world problems that pertain to their areas of interest.
