As an online learner, it can sometimes feel like you are alone. That's not the case at CDU.  We have carefully developed an online campus build a strong Catholic community that enhances your learning experience. Here we share Christ by fostering interpersonal relationships outside of the course rooms, providing information for student success, and offering a place for prayer to enhance the spiritual connectedness of our students.

Is Distance Learning For You

Posted by Therese Cashen on Wed, Sep 15, 2010 @ 08:12 AM

Looking for a great opportunity to meet and interact with Catholics from around the world, while furthering your formal education?

  • Do you need a higher level degree for your job but don’t have the flexibility to drive to a college campus several nights a week?
  • Would you like the opportunity to continue your education at a time and place that is convenient for your schedule?
  • Does your current schedule simply not allow you to attend on-campus classes every week?
  • Are you comfortable using email and accessing the Internet?
  • Is being part of a learning community something you value?
  • Are you self-motivated?
  • Do you feel comfortable trying new ways to learn?
  • Does the opportunity to interact with adults from all over the world excite you?

If you answered "yes" to these questions, then distance education could be for you. CDU offers several learning formats designed to meet the varying needs of adult learners.
