Program Details

Metropolitan State University offers an Individualized Degree at a Distance for professionals who have an Associate of Arts, Associate of Science, or an Associate of Applied Science Degree and want to finish their undergraduate education. Students will have the opportunity to complete their degree without having to attend a college class on campus, utilizing independent studies courses online. An individualized Bachelor of Arts degree is intended to match the student’s educational, personal, and career interests, intended to take advantage of interdisciplinary experience and work experience, and to utilize credits earned from other institutions in order to finish their degree.

Through the program, students will finish their undergraduate degrees by studying entirely as part of an online curriculum. Some of the classes include perspectives on educational philosophy and planning, creative learning strategies workshop, first college degree plan updating workshop, self-directed learning theory seminar, principles of civic engagement, human rights and the educated citizen, and more.  

Students will need to create an educational plan which will lead to goals and qualifications which need to be met in order to demonstrate professional and educational growth.  These qualifications include but are not limited to the ability to demonstrate proficiency in the fundamental professional principles and practices that enable individuals to function in professional roles, to employ critical-thinking and analysis skills to solve problems in a real-world context, to analyze ethical issues that impact decisions from economic, political, legal, and social perspective, and to evaluate the application of technology as a strategy for professional growth.
