How does a hybrid e-degree work?

As a Graphic Design and Digital Communications Specialist hybrid e-degree student, you’ll take online courses through Lake Area Tech’s eLearning system. Most of your time learning will be done at home but you’ll come to campus occasionally (some evenings and Saturdays) to complete lab and project work and when you do, you’ll be learning in our remodeled Computer Information Systems area!

Why an E-Degree?

Lake Area Tech e-degrees are “hybrid” – an innovative blend of distance and on-campus learning. What’s great about that is you can keep your day job (work, raise kids) and still get a degree. With hybrid education, you get maximum flexibility to study when and where you want, but you’ll still get the chance to learn on-campus with Lake Area Tech instructors on selected projects.
