Outreach and Online Education
The Liberal Arts Outreach and Online Education office coordinates with our Outreach partners to develop and deliver both online and face-to-face semester-based courses for students interested in accessing a Penn State education at a distance. Many of the same high-quality courses available at University Park are accessible through our virtual classrooms, and our course catalog continues to grow.
Who We Are
We work with Departments in the College of the Liberal Arts to bring the same high-quality courses offered in Penn State classrooms to a global audience. Our experienced instructional designers work closely with faculty to develop and refine engaging online courses, and to adapt existing courses for delivery over the Web.
The Outreach and Online Education office also collaborates closely with Penn State World Campus to further broaden the reach of College programs and degrees. Additionally, we participate in many of the College’s broader initiatives with Outreach such as the Justice and Safety Institute, various conferences, Continuing Education, and the Higher Achievement program.
