Online Degree Programs at UMassOnline
Quality Education Online
Earn your accredited online degree or certificate from one of the nation's top-ranked universities, the University of Massachusetts. UMassOnline allows you to attend the same high-quality programs and learn from the same world-class faculty as students at the University of Massachusetts' Amherst, Boston, Dartmouth, Lowell or Medical School campuses.
The University of Massachusetts has been a leader in distance education for over 30 years. In 1975 we were among the first to send out videotaped engineering courses. We are also one of the seven founding members of National Technological University. We have been delivering education via the Web since 1995.
Whether you are a busy professional, balancing work and family, or just interested in learning without the constraints of a campus-based program, UMassOnline enables you to earn a high-quality accredited degree online.
Why Choose UMassOnline?
UMassOnline is ideal for working professionals, military personnel, stay-at-home parents, people with disabilities, human resources managers looking for new opportunities for employees, and, of course, UMass alumni.
You can participate in your course from your home, office, or traveling, while still having the same access to the excellence of UMass professors/instructors as do on-campus students. UMassOnline courses are taught by the same world class faculty that teach on-campus, and courses include exercises, projects, and collaborative assignments.
The rich learning environment features tutorials and courses with audio lectures, photo materials, discussions, chat rooms, readings, illustrations, and video. Courses generally follow the campuses' standard academic calendars and begin in early fall, winter, spring, and summer.
There are many services available to online students, including academic advising, library facilities, textbooks, and more. Credit earned by successfully completing UMass courses from one campus can, in most cases, be transferred to other campuses, colleges, and universities.
UMassOnline is regionally accredited by NEASC, the New England Association of Schools and Colleges (209 Burlington Road, Bedford, Massachusetts 01730-1433; 781-271-0022). In addition, many of each campus' schools and colleges are also accredited by discipline-specific agencies.
