What does online education look like at Houghton?

Your online program at Houghton will look similar to what you expect from a traditional, face-to-face college learning experience, but there are some distinctions:

  Online Assignments

Instead of ‘live,’ in-class sessions, you will participate in video content, readings, and online discussions at your convenience, enhancing your learning experience when and where you choose.

  Video Conferencing

Real-time video conferencing allows you to interact with faculty and classmates. Any live conversations will be pre-scheduled and clearly discussed in your course syllabus.

  I.T. Support

Connect with friendly technical support professionals, throughout the week and at select hours on weekends, via chat, phone or email as you navigate your online courses.
