Elizabeth City State University Debuts Its First Fully Online Degree Program

Elizabeth City State University in North Carolina has announced that it is now offering an online degree program in interdisciplinary studies. It is the first fully online degree program in university history.

The interdisciplinary degree program offers a number of concentrations including social and behavioral sciences, STEM, humanities, health, children and community services, Africana studies, and politics and government.

Charles Reed, the coordinator of the new online program, said that the new offering “will allow students who cannot, for whatever reason, enroll in an on-campus program to benefit from the world-class education that ECSU offers. It also allows current students the flexibility to complete degree work off campus.”

Vann Newkirk, provost at the university, added that “the addition of the interdisciplinary studies program allows ECSU to expand its degree offerings globally, and to reach an entirely new market. Furthermore, since the program has a great deal of flexibility, the university believes it will appeal to persons who previously attended college but never completed a degree.”
