The Importance of an Online Education

August 2010

The College of Professional Studies' regulatory affairs program has seen tremendous growth since its initial launch. Comprised of 600 students from 41 countries worldwide, our program includes 36 course offerings. Its convenient online format allows half of the students in the program to take courses online.

To highlight the importance of an online education within our regulatory affairs program, Eric Kupferberg and Chuck Kilfoye have co-written an article that was recently published by the Regulatory Affairs Professional Society (RAPS) monthly journal Focus. The article is entitled: "What's So Distant About Distance Education? Online Learning in Regulatory Affairs Graduate Programs". It discusses the move towards online education by examining the College’s use of the Learning Management System (LMS), Blackboard, the structure of the regulatory affairs program, and the advantages of being an online student. The circulation of the article is 25,000 in both online and print editions.
