A Diverse Learning Community

With online classes geography was not a limitation, and I was actually able to interact with people from all over the world. Scheduling was also not a limitation: I could watch lectures and read and write posts online on my own time. Weekly online posts created a space where everyone had to contribute, which sometimes led to more conversation than in an on-campus class.—Brandon Hook MAT ’16
The assignments when I studied online were interesting, and the work was just as challenging as it would have been in person. It definitely freed up more time in my daily life that otherwise would have been spent in a classroom. Instead, I got to go at my own pace, which was amazing.—Lindsey Wright, MAT ’12
For me online classes were extremely convenient because I worked full time while pursuing my MAT—it helped ease my busy Southern California commute. The format was well organized and my professors were very responsive. Another upside was that you can keep the lectures and listen to them as many times as needed to feel comfortable with the material.—Katherine Butler, MAT ’09
