Office of Distance Education

For over a century UW has embraced the land grant mission by sending its faculty across the state to meet with citizens, students, teachers, business owners, ranchers, and farmers to help them learn. Currently and in partnership with the university’s colleges and departments, UW extends the university learning experience to students across the state, region and nation by offering over 40 academic programs at the certificate, endorsement, bachelor, master, and doctorate award level. Career credentials are also available, mostly concentrated for K-12 educators. The programs feature two different delivery methods both requiring high speed Internet connectivity. Web conferencing courses are “real time” interactive courses that meet regularly throughout the semester. Courses can be delivered to your mobile devices or computers if you have a webcam and a microphone. Fully online courses are available anywhere and at any time. These courses are delivered via WyoCourses and may also use additional online communication and collaborative tools.
