Judson College Distance Learning program earns recognition for excellence and affordability

A recent study of online degree programs recognized Judson College for both the quality and affordability of its distance learning program. The study, conducted by Affordable Colleges Online (AC Online), analyzed more than 2,000 accredited colleges and universities across the nation. “The purpose of our study was to identify the most affordable online colleges in Alabama,” according to Dan Schuessler, AC Online CEO.

“The combination of quality, affordability, and flexibility earned Judson College a place on our list of Online Colleges in Alabama that Win on Affordability…Judson College offers an exceptional collection of distance learning options at a very affordable price,” Schuessler said. “We found Judson to be among the best.”

Dr. Kathy Chen, Director of Distance Learning for Judson College, concurs with the study’s results. Dr. Chen recently joined the administrative staff and oversees the online learning program.

Chen believes that Judson’s Distance Learning program continues what the on-campus academic programs already do well: provide individualized, student-centered instruction to engage students’ minds and empower them in their pursuits of purposeful lives.  Chen praises the program’s individual attention given to each student, so much so that students may start classes at times that are convenient for them, rather than always adhering to a rigid semester “cohort” model. Chen wants Judson’s distance learning program to help every student receive a top-notch education while he or she takes care of their family and work responsibilities. Though Judson’s distance learning program “wins on affordability,” its attention to excellence and flexibility in instruction shows a clear commitment to student success.

Judson offers Bachelor of Science, Bachelor of Arts, and Bachelor of Ministry degrees that are available entirely online. Online majors and minors are offered in subjects such as business administration, criminal justice, English, history, religion, psychology, and many other fields. The school is accredited by the Commission on Colleges of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools.
