Benefits of Online Learning

John Dooley, BLS ’14

John Dooley“The online classes at Dominican were great. The class size was small, making it an intimate—at times one-on-one—learning experience. Beyond that, the knowledge gained in studying economics and the law, the universal commercial code and ethics, along with leadership techniques, gave me a solid foundation to enter any business venture with a confidence I never had before.”

Online learning allows students to earn a degree from a well-respected university without having to put their careers on hold. The online BA in Legal Studies degree program is more flexible and convenient than traditional campus programs, but by no means any easier. Each week, students are expected to read about 100 pages, take a short online quiz, engage in online discussions with classmates and their instructor, and complete written assignments.

The ability to write well is fundamental to any professional field, which is why the BLS program requires students to produce a substantial amount of academic writing in each course. Graduates should have a large portfolio of written work which can be used to demonstrate learning outcomes and abilities to employers and graduate/ professional school admissions committees.

The online legal studies degree program combines cutting-edge technology with over a century of tradition. Running the course management system requires minimal technical requirements.
