Limestone was a pioneer in providing educational opportunities for working adults wishing to complete a baccalaureate degree. The Block Program, established in 1976, brought Limestone classes to numerous locations throughout South Carolina. In 1997, Limestone established the Virtual Campus Program, providing students around the world the opportunity to complete their degrees through classes offered via the Internet. In 2005, the Block and the Virtual Campus programs merged as the Limestone College Extended Campus.
Many working adults have a goal to complete a college education, but because of their individual circumstances, it is difficult to accomplish. With most adults being employed full time and having family obligations, convenience is a major factor in the pursuit of a college degree.
To offer this convenience, Limestone College makes available the Extended Campus, providing the opportunity to take classes throughout South Carolina as well as any place in the world. Classes are offered at South Carolina sites in Charleston, Columbia, Florence, Greer, Kingstree, Lowcountry (Yemassee), and Aiken/ North Augusta. In addition, courses are offered online via the Internet.
The Extended Campus offers five majors at the Associate's Degree level and 19 majors at the Bachelor's Degree level. Fifteen different majors are normally offered at all classroom locations. At some sites, the computer courses must be taken via the Internet. All the required major courses for the Computer Science, Business Administration, Psychology, Criminal Justice, and Liberal Studies majors are offered online.
The Extended Campus is a non-traditional way to learn a traditional curriculum and has been successful at Limestone since 1976. It is a change in style, but not substance. The distinctive, accelerated format allows students time for in-depth study, research, and improved concentration in earning an associate's or a bachelor's degree. No matter what the situation, Limestone College provides a convenient way for adults to return to school.
