RE: The Distance Education Report

DATE: September 21 - 23, 2005

The annual report on distance education programs in the Montana University System is attached to this memorandum. Hopefully, the report is self-explanatory. To assist you in reading through the report, however, the following academic programs were made available in a distance or alternative delivery mode this past year:

  • Online or Internet Programs:

--a certificate in K-12 school library media, from Montana State University-Bozeman;

--the Associate of Arts degree, from Montana State University-Great Falls College of Technology;

--a certificate in forensic studies from The University of Montana-Missoula;

--the Associate of Science degree in nursing, from Miles Community College; this program is also delivered, in part, by interactive television.

  • Offsite Programs:

--the Associate of Applied Science degree in aviation, from Montana State University-Great Falls College of Technology; the program is delivered in Bozeman, Montana;

--the Bachelor of Arts degree in teacher education, with an endorsement in library/media, from The University of Montana Western; the program is delivered in Missoula, Montana.


If you have any questions about this report, I'm sure my colleagues in academic affairs would be happy to assist me in answering those queries.
