On Campus or From a Distance?

If you choose to study on the Knoxville campus, your first few classes may be in a physical, traditional classroom, but your most of your classes will primarily be on-line. Distance Education students will take classes 100% on-line. Both options give you the same great education. Take a look at the benefits of each below.
