The trend toward online education continues apace. Fr. Fessio has launched a new Ignatius-Angelicum Liberal Studies Program. It combines the online teaching of college credit great books seminars (through Angelicum Great Books) with an association with the Universities of Western Civilization, who will take up to 48 credits from Angelicum. This is a way to reduce costs of college education considerably. It also gets students into a robust Catholic liberal education in high school for college credit. Among the colleges in the UWC are Benedictine College, St. Bede's Hall at Oxford, Campion College in Australia, and Catholic Distance University. It is a truly international program with an international student body.
