Inside Distance Education at Eastern

Like every Eastern on-campus academic program, Distance Education (DE) courses in the College of Justice & Safety are built on three core components: dedicated teaching faculty with extensive field experience; robust structures for student support and success; and continuous interweaving of principles and practice. With an array of online technologies and delivery methods, DE students from around the country are learning, collaborating and creating new knowledge.


We invite you to “take” a DE course, meet faculty and staff, browse a syllabus and sample assignments and step (safely) inside a house fire. See why employers everywhere esteem the rigor, breadth, and professional preparation of our students and why students call Eastern’s DE programs unique in both challenge and support.
