Continuing and Extended Education
Continuing and Extended Education, located at 40 College Park, extends the educational resources of the University through creative on-campus and off-campus programs that link organizations and individuals of all ages with the University’s academic programs and personal and professional development offerings. Several of Continuing and Extended Education programs may be of particular interest to graduate degree-seeking students, including the Off-Campus Program, Summer Program, the Center for International Program, and Interactive Distance Education for All Learners (IDEAL).
The Off-Campus Program supports the delivery of complete Master in Education degree programs to cohorts of preK-12 teachers in their school communities. In addition, the program offers graduate-credit courses and professional development opportunities throughout northwest Ohio in areas of interest to teachers and school administrators.
The Summer Program promotes and coordinates the University’s summer course offerings, thereby helping support graduate student success toward completing their degrees or fulfilling professional development requirements.
The Center for International Programs processes and reviews all international student admissions applications, and provides immigration advice and personal support for international graduate students. In addition, the center promotes and coordinates international student exchanges and education abroad opportunities for graduate students and encourages international awareness on campus and in the community.
IDEAL, which promotes and coordinates BGSU’s distance education efforts, works to expand the university’s academic year and summer courses offered via distance education (i.e., web-based and web-centric graduate courses and fully on-line degree programs).
