Virtually every college subject can be studied online. The main subject categories therefore include:
- Criminal Justice
- Graphic Design
- Liberal Arts
- Social Sciences
Some online degrees include an offline requirement.
For example, to truly understand chemistry, a student would need to perform laboratory experiences. Similarly, to prepare for the business world an MBA student would benefit from a corporate internship.
Programs that combine online learning with offline studies are referred to as hybrids or blended programs.
