Online Learning

Online Courses
With 150 different Internet courses from which to choose, Coastline is sure to have an 8-week online course that can help you reach your educational goal. These courses, offered five terms each year, are designed to meet the mobile lifestyle of our military students, and offer the highest level of interaction with other students and faculty.

Learning Communities
Learning Communities are groups of people who share common academic goals and attitudes. Students in a Coastline Learning Community take concurrent courses with common educational objectives. An individual assignment – a research paper for example – fulfills course requirements for two classes that are based in different disciplines. These communities take an interdisciplinary approach to higher education. For more information, click here.
