Remote Student Courses

Welcome to CSBS's remote student courses page.

Here you will find information on the courses being offered this semester. For more information about the online courses in general or about our distance education program, please return to the Seminarylink.

Remote Student Courses allow for students to participate in live, on-campus courses via the internet without actually being physically in the classroom. Remote students must have access to stable high speed internet as well as a webcam and microphone, because they will be expected to participate in the course just like students in the physical classroom. (Headset microphones actually provide for optimum communication.) That also means that students must be at their computers for the duration of the class time each week. 

Contact the registrar if you are interested in any of these courses.  Textbooks are not included in the fees need to be ordered separately.
