This article describes an online Master's degree in Family Studies and reports on student readiness for distance learning, student satisfaction, and program review. Evaluations indicate that graduate students in Family Studies are sufficiently prepared to succeed in online course work and that they are satisfied with their program, identifying convenience as a primary advantage of distance learning. Program evaluations, conducted after course conversion to online delivery, focused on Principles of Good Practice for distance education. This review includes implications and future directions for administrators of distance learning programs.
