The University of Oklahoma in Las Vegas is part of University of Oklahoma Outreach, a fully-accredited academic division of OU that extends the resources of the university to locations throughout the state, across the nation and around the world.
Bachelor’s and master’s degrees are available to civilian and military students in the Las Vegas area, including Nellis Air Force Base, through online courses and intensive one-week, on-site seminars.
Classes are taught by OU’s outstanding internationally recognized faculty in delivery formats designed to allow working adults the opportunity to earn their degrees. With year-round, open enrollment, students can apply at any time by visiting lasvegas.ou.edu or by e-mailing email@example.com.
Students can choose from the following degree options:
n Bachelor of Arts in Administrative Leadership (online)
n Bachelor of Arts in Liberal Studies (online)
n Bachelor of Science in Criminal Justice (online)
n Master of Arts in Administrative Leadership (online)
n Master of Arts in Liberal Studies (online)
n Master of Human Relations (on-site at Nellis)
n Master of Prevention Science (online)
While the administrative leadership and criminal justice programs are offered primarily online, on-site meetings in the evenings and weekends can be offered in the Las Vegas area as part of an online class (i.e., hybrid format) when necessary. OU’s Master of Human Relations degree is offered on-site at Nellis Air Force Base. With pre- and post- course assignments, students are able to attend class for one week and earn three hours of graduate credit.
OU’s Bachelor of Science in criminal justice degree program is also currently engaged in partnership with the Metropolitan Police Department. The program’s 100 percent online, as well as condensed evening/weekend format, was sought out specifically to meet the educational needs of the police officers, corrections officers and civilian employees, given the nature and high demands of their shift-work schedules.
As of fall 2010, two Metropolitan Police deputy chiefs, two captains, multiple lieutenants and sergeants, as well as dozens of patrol and corrections officers were enrolled in OU’s degree programs.
Tuition is comparable to in-state schools with a flat rate offered to all Las Vegas residents, military service members, spouses and dependents. OU accepts military and other organizations’ tuition assistance, veterans’ benefits and financial aid. Scholarships may also be available through the university.
The University of Oklahoma was established as a land-grant, public university in 1890 in Norman, Okla. It enrolls more than 30,000 students annually and has more than 2,400 full-time faculty members.
All programs are regionally accredited through the North Central Association of Colleges and Secondary Schools. While well-known for its Division I athletic program, OU has been recognized as the public university with the most National Merit scholars per capita and as a top 10 public university in terms of academic excellence and cost by The Princeton Review.
