Today, Regent offers more than 20 degree programs online and is considered a worldwide model for online education. The Regent online Worldwide Campus combines technology and practical application with instant access to learning resources, professors, and other students via the Internet. Designed for busy career professionals, nonresidential students, military personnel, professionals who travel, and stay-at-home parents, the Worldwide Campus is ideal for anyone who needs flexibility in their scheduling. In addition to this distinction, Regent prepares leaders to make a positive impact upon society through degree programs taught from a Judeo-Christian perspective. Regent students typically share these commitments toward faith and values and represent a wide variety of Christian denominations.

Learn more about citation styles

Citation styles gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:
