Through Kirtland you can! We’re still one of the very few colleges in the world that offers entirely online science classes with online labs.
How does it work? Obviously your classes and lectures all are online — and you do your labs at home. Everything else is online.
Your labs are shipped to you.
You do every section of every lab experiment (vs. missing one because your partner did it).
You do everything FROM HOME.
You never have to drive to campus — ever. Add saving time, saving gas money, and possibly daycare costs to Kirtland’s affordable tuition, and this decision starts to look really smart.
You’ll order your labs from Kirtland’s Bookstore, just like you would a textbook. The lab kit includes a box with the chemicals you’ll need, equipment and a CD lab manual. It’s delivered directly to your door.
You get to use your lab kit again and again so you can master everything, redo parts you haven’t completely grasped, execute every part of each experiment — and be a very successful science student.
Welcome to distance learning and a college without borders! It’s unique, but you are not embarking on some fly-by-night idea. Kirtland has international students and out-of-state students that never have stepped foot on campus. These online students are taking advantage of one of the few colleges in the world providing online science courses.
Kirtland’s science instructors have decades of combined online teaching experience and deliver courses that often are more valuable than those in a traditional classroom. You’ll be able to ask questions without hesitation and will receive a direct response from your instructor.
Your online science courses will prepare you for a career that likely will involve a digital notebook, in:
We’ll support your start with an orientation so you’ll be ready to participate with confidence via live chats and discussion boards. We’ll even make sure you know exactly how to download during your courses—so if you’re less-than super-savvy, relax. We want you to do well — and enjoy the process.
