Going the Distance in Online Learning
SHSU offers 43 fully online degree programs along with a number of certificates, all of which are taught by on-campus professors.
The Various Faces of Online Learning
A national TV vocalist competitor, an information security analyst and an NFL player—what do they all have in common? They all earned their degree online with SHSU.
Preparing Faculty for the Global Classroom
Online classes at SHSU are designed with the same outcomes and academic rigor as on-campus classes. Here, faculty approach teaching with the same intent and determination as they do in the classroom.
A Day in the Life of the Professor
A typical day in the life of a hybrid faculty member who teaches both online and on campus is no different than stepping into another classroom.
Behind the Online Scenes
With more students logging on every year, SHSU Online has service staff dedicated entirely to bringing the classroom experience to the computer screen.
Evolution of Online Education
Early distance education courses at SHSU were first offered in disciplines such as education, history and criminal justice, in the early 2000s. Today, a quarter of SHSU semester credit hours are generated online.
Uncommon Grad School
With degrees ranging from Communication Studies to Digital Forensics, from Homeland Security Studies to Public Administration, SHSU delivers programs that may seem a bit unconventional to online learning but fill important needs in the job market now and for the future.
