Online Education


Through guidance, leadership and direction from the Online Education Steering Committee, the College of Charleston provides exceptional, high-quality and flexible online education for our students across the globe. Online education supports the College’s strategic plan to develop “ethically centered, intellectually versatile and globally fluent citizens who create innovative solutions to social, economic and environmental challenges.”


The College of Charleston views quality online education as an ever-evolving process supported by sustained faculty and student development, regular adoption of new technologies and sound pedagogical approaches, consistent integration into academic programming and institutional commitment. Although the College of Charleston is not primarily an online education institution, online education complements the institution’s strategic plan to “be a transformative national university redefining liberal arts education through innovation.”
