Schools With Online Court Reporting Degrees

Court reporters begin their careers with a certificate or a degree in court reporting, realtime captioning or reporting. These programs are typically offered online at community colleges and court reporting-specific schools, though some programs are offered at universities and colleges. Associate's degree and certificate programs are the most common, with bachelor's degree programs being more rare. Some schools also break up the degree into stenograph and voice writing specializations.
