Earn a Degree Online in Less Than Four Years
Adult learners and non-traditional students appreciate the convenience and flexibility of ORU's Online Learning program. They also value the Christian worldview and purpose inherent in our courses--an approach that is rare on any campus, online or otherwise.
ORU's Online Learning program offers opportunities to earn accredited undergraduate Bachelor of Science and Bachelor of Arts degrees in a variety of subject areas through an experience facilitated in an entirely online format. Each course was developed in conjunction with ORU's fully credentialed on-campus faculty. Often, the same professors who teach the subject on ORU's campus teach courses for the online campus. Adjunct professors with a master's degree or higher lead others.
As a student, after you have completed the full degree program, you will earn your degree, receive a diploma from Oral Roberts University, and be invited to participate in a commencement ceremony on campus.
Through the program, you will take two online classes at a time, and you can enroll any time before an 7-week session begins. The program runs year-round, with 2 terms in the fall, 2 terms in the spring, and 2 terms in the summer.
If you're looking for a fully online master's degree, ORU's Graduate College of Business also offers its Leadership MBA program in an online format.
ORU Graduate College of Education offers a flexible and accelerated online Master's degree in School Administration with an emphasis in Christian School Administration. The Christian School Administration program is designed for the college graduate interested in serving as a principal or school administrator in an elementary, middle school or secondary setting on a Christian or private school campus. A candidate can complete up to 80% of the program through online courses.
The remaining courses are completed in two four-day modules on the ORU campus during
one Summer Institute. Preparation for leadership in private, Christian schools provides
an in-depth study of the philosophy affecting organization and administration of schools,
and extensive practical training is provided through clinical experiences. Our program
format is conducive to adult learners and provides the opportunity to earn a degree
while focusing on work during the school year. Program distinctives include:
1. Reduced cost
2. Flexible format
3. Year-round admission
4. Attendance at only one Summer Institute
5. Principal Certification is an option
In addition to the accredited degree programs, Online Learning also includes the Online Bible Institute, a certificate program under the direction of Dr. Sam Barsoum. This convenient program offers in-depth training in biblical studies, theology and ministry. Some course work can transfer into the undergraduate program.
