Two words, diversity and flexibility, sum up the assignments in a typical distance education course at Briercrest. The range of assignments in a distance education course may include reading reports, chapter summaries/questions, journaling, case studies, short research projects, and a major research paper.
A huge benefit to distance education is the openness of the course schedule. To get you started, we set a due date for the first assignment at six weeks from registration. After that, you have eight months to complete a course, although most courses can be completed much faster than that.
Our online courses are semester-based and run from January-April and September-December. These courses are delivered completely online and students will be required to follow these semester time frames.
