The University of Pennsylvania will become the first Ivy League school to offer an online Bachelor’s degree, starting next fall. Specifically designed for non-traditional students, the degree will be a bachelor of applied arts and sciences, through Penn’s School of Arts and Sciences’ College of Liberal and Professional Studies, which caters to adult students and nontraditional students. It will emphasize interdisciplinary studies and focus on how liberal arts ties into professional and career development – in short, it will have a very practical focus looking toward goals post-graduation.

There will be two residency requirements, which is often common among online or low-residency programs. This is exciting news, and worth keeping an eye out for more information as it’s disseminated!
