Our Online Campus
We Meet You Wherever You Are in Life
UMass Global fully transitioned to 100% online learning in 2021. Why? Because our adult students, busy with work and family responsibilities, told us they preferred online learning. It provides greater flexibility in coursework, and it eliminates time spent commuting to campus. As a university, it allows us to keep our 65+ degrees and certificates affordable to those same working adults. Online learning wasn’t anything new for us — we pioneered online education, offering our first online courses in 2007, long before most schools, and our experience pays off for our students.
We deliver coursework in two online formats:
Most of UMass Global degree, certificate, and credential courses are led by an instructor and are completed in eight-week sessions. These courses are a mixture of online classroom lectures, group discussions, projects, papers, and other coursework that needs to be completed and delivered on dates set by the instructor, hence the “instructor-led” title.
We offer 10 business and information technology degrees through UMass Global MyPath, our competency-based education program. MyPath courses are completely self-paced, meaning students work through their coursework without set deadlines. Students individually complete each section and move on to the next, as they establish competency. It’s the perfect format for some students, especially those with changing work schedules. With MyPath, students can take as many courses as they want within a 24-week billing cycle, all for one set fee.
