Imagine enjoying the personal attention and academic rigor of one of Wake Forest’s 300-level classes while studying abroad in Australia or caring for a loved one at home.

Today, this flexibility is one step closer to becoming a reality.

On Nov. 15, Wake Forest, as part of a consortium of top-tier colleges and universities, announced plans to introduce a new, innovative program that transforms the model of online education. Semester Online will be the first program of its kind to offer undergraduate students the opportunity to take rigorous, online courses for credit from 10 of the country’s top schools.

In addition to Wake Forest, the consortium currently includes Brandeis University, Duke University, Emory University, Northwestern University, The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, University of Notre Dame, University of Rochester, Vanderbilt University and Washington University in St. Louis. The consortium is partnering with 2U, formerly known as 2tor, the leader in creating online academic experiences for top universities.
