Why LAS Online

Welcome to LAS Online: the portal for all College of Liberal Arts and Sciences online classes.

Our goal is to create new educational courses that meet students’ academic and professional goals. While many institutions offer online courses, LAS Online separates itself by being:


Courses are typically eight-weeks long, count as Illinois course credit, and are structured so that students can learn the material at their pace.


The LAS Online instructional staff at Illinois find creative ways to take advantage of the evolving capabilities of online learning, such as on-sight videos lessons, wikis, and much more.


Our online courses help on-campus students meet their curriculum needs and transfer students decrease the time needed to complete their degree, helping students earn their degree in a timely manner.


LAS Online courses use the same technology as we use in our everyday lives. Instructors are sincerely dedicated to helping students gain the knowledge and skills needed to excel in and out of the classroom.


LAS Online offers nearly 150 courses, including courses that fulfill many General Education requirements.
