Online or in-person? In a post-pandemic world, that’s a question not just about work, but also study. One survey found that about 71% of graduate students take at least one online course, and 52% take online courses exclusively.
If you’re thinking of pursuing a master’s degree or certificate, you might be weighing the convenience and flexibility of an online program versus the proven experience of a brick-and-mortar university.
What if you could have the best of both worlds?
At the University of Denver’s University College, all programs can be completed 100% online, so you can study on your schedule. And we go the extra mile to make sure our online courses are truly engaging.
Our instructors use hands-on activities, the latest technology, and thoughtful learning materials to create impactful learning experiences where you can make meaningful connections with peers.
Refining online learning for 25 years
Because University College has been honing online education for 25+ years (long before the pandemic forced other schools to shift), we have deep expertise in how to make the material come alive online.
We have an in-house team of Learning Experience Design experts who help create and update courses. This team builds or redesigns about 65 courses per year, and “tunes-up” about 80, along with continual smaller adjustments.
For each course, these experts work with instructors, the program’s academic director, and industry leaders to craft content that will be relevant for the field’s working professionals.
Inclusive practices are a main focus. “We’re constantly enhancing our learning environment to ensure that all learners can be successful, feel included, and develop skills to lead in their fields,” says Chelsea Ruge, Director of Learning Experience Design.
Individual instructors bring their own style to each course through videos, discussion engagement, feedback, and supplemental materials, and can adapt the course to student interests and needs during the term.
