Post University has been a pioneer in providing distance learning programs since 1976. In 1996, it began offering accelerated degree programs over the Internet and is now the largest provider of fully online higher education in Connecticut. Through the Online Education Institute, Post University also is providing expertise and support to other regional non-profit universities who want to extend the reach of their campus-based programs to online adult learners.
“Our online learning model was built with the understanding that it requires more than rigorous academics taught by highly qualified faculty to have strong student outcomes,” said Mulgrew. “You also must design a highly interactive, student-focused learning environment that includes outstanding student support services.”
In addition to offering online accelerated degree programs designed for working adults, Post University also offers a traditional campus-based college experience to students on its Waterbury, CT campus.
