Learning online in an asynchronous format means that you can complete your degree at times and in locations that are best for you. Avoid commute times or “traditional” classroom hours, so you can complete your degree and advance your career even if you travel for work, have kids at home, or keep a busy non-traditional schedule.
Coursework is delivered through a variety of prepared video lessons, readings, or engagement-oriented learning tasks that you’ll complete by predefined dates, but this doesn’t mean you’ll learn alone. You will participate in discussions with peers and faculty, and get to know each other personally, academically, and professionally.
Faculty act as mentors throughout your program to ensure you’re on the right path to meet your career goals. You’ll get to know them through discussions, one-on-one email correspondence, and their individualized feedback on your coursework.
