Online learning at HCCC continues to grow with launch of six new fully online programs

With the launch of six new fully online programs in the past six months, Hudson County Community College in Jersey City continues to make significant strides in expanding access to college education and reaching more students than ever before through its robust catalog of online and hybrid courses.

Powered by a dedicated team of online learning professionals, the Center for Online Learning at HCCC supports faculty across the college’s four academic schools in designing, developing and delivering an innovative, interactive and accessible online curriculum.

The addition of these six new fully online programs raises the total number of fully online programs offered through Hudson Online to 16. Notably, these programs are offered across a wide range of disciplines.

Newly added programs include a Certificate in Accounting, an Associate of Arts in Early Childhood Education (Liberal Arts), an Associate of Arts in Elementary/Secondary Education (Liberal Arts), an Associate of Arts in Special Education (Liberal Arts), a Proficiency Certificate in Community Healthcare Navigator and an Associate of Science in Health Services Option in Public Health.

In addition to these fully online programs, most of the college’s 90-plus programs can be completed partially online, and Hudson Online’s 150-plus online and hybrid courses include a variety of online labs and electives.

This affords students tremendous flexibility in scheduling their classes by removing barriers students often encounter in finding a course section that meets their needs. Over one-third of HCCC’s students take one or more courses online each semester, and approximately 12% of students take their entire courseload online.

“We firmly believe that online learning is a long-term opportunity that enriches lives and empowers our students and member of our community. We are proud to be a leading institution in this endeavor, and we are committed to continuing to expand our online offerings in the future,” HCCC President Christopher Reber said.
