Distance Education Faculty

Distance Education professors at RTS are full-time residential or adjunct faculty members who have significant participation and oversight of our online courses and programs.  Although these professors may not be the same as the course lecturing professor, they have Ph.D.’s in the subject area covered for each online course and provide a high level of teaching expertise and interaction and feedback to online students.  If you have any questions about a specific DE course, please contact RTS Global & Distance Education at 704-366-4853 or you may e-mail the Global Registrar, Mrs. Alice Hathaway, at ahathaway@rts.edu.
