Online Education Possibilities Expand

The entire nature of higher education is being transformed by the internet. Thanks to computers, worldwide access, and an eager student base, schools who once only offered education opportunities on campus are now branching out through cyberspace to reach students globally.

Instead, these particular schools exist solely online. Overhead is kept to a minimum and students are learning at a pace set by themselves, not by college professors. Today, more and more schools are offering online education opportunities to an expanding pool of students.

Not settling for a limited pool of students, Villanova has embraced online education at a level greater than most traditional schools of higher learning. This move has allowed Villanova to not only maintain student enrollment, but expand it. With the traditional student pool shrinking, Villanova is successfully going against the tide thanks to its online education initiative.
