Bachelor of Arts in Women’s, Gender and Sexuality Studies FAQ
What are the benefits of online learning?
The biggest benefit of online learning is that you can work to earn your degree from your own home while raising a family, working full-time or experiencing particular life circumstances that make commuting to campus difficult or impossible. Online learning also gives you an opportunity to interact with a diverse group of students from different regions and backgrounds.
How is the online program different than the campus program?
At UofL you are taught by the same world-class faculty as our on-campus students. You read the same books, do many of the same assignments and earn the same degree. Neither your transcript nor your diploma notes your degree was completed online, only that you completed courses at the University of Louisville. The biggest difference is that you are able to do coursework on your own time and in a way that best fits your learning and lifestyle. Please note, however, that not all on-campus courses are available online.
Can I receive credit for courses completed at another school?
On a case-by-case basis, credit transfer is allowed from any regionally accredited university to fulfill general education requirements
I noticed that the Department of Women’s and Gender Studies offers both a Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Science in Women’s and Gender Studies. Can the Bachelor of Science in Women’s and Gender Studies also be completed fully online?
No, at this time only the Bachelor of Arts in Women’s and Gender Studies will be offered fully online. The research methods course required for the Bachelor of Science is not currently taught online, but we hope to be able to offer it in the future.
I have never attended college (or I have earned less than 24 credits so far). Can I earn this degree online?
Yes. All the courses you need to complete a full, four-year degree are available online.
Are courses taught by UofL faculty?
Yes, at UofL you are taught by the same world-class faculty as our on-campus students. You read the same books, do many of the same assignments and earn the same degree. The biggest difference is that you are able to do it in a way that best fits your lifestyle.
