Montana State University Online Programs Info Session at FVCC

Flathead Valley Community College will welcome Montana State University’s director of online learning on May 20 to help residents learn more about MSU-Bozeman’s online programs, including a new bachelor’s degree completion program in Liberal Studies.

Peg Wherry, Director of Online and Distance Learning for MSU Extended University, will be at onsite at FVCC to discuss online programs offered by MSU and answer questions from attendees about getting started.  The first 15 attendees will receive an MSU Bobcats t-shirt.

MSU’s new Liberal Studies degree completion program is specifically for individuals who have successfully completed two years of college and are interested in completing a flexible interdisciplinary degree. Liberal Studies prepares people for success in a wide range of occupations, including graduate study.

Attendees can also receive information on MSU’s graduate programs in education (specifically science, math, agriculture, and library media), Native American studies, engineering and science management, land resources and environmental sciences, and addiction counseling. Wherry will also answer questions about online learning in general, what an online class is like, what it’s like to be an online student, and what support services are available to new students.

The session will take place from 7 to 8:30 p.m. room 144A inside the Arts and Technology Building on the FVCC campus. For more information, contact Wherry at (406) 994-6550 or
