Online Education

The Master of Science in Health Professions Education is completed predominately online, with a flexible on-campus component prior to graduation. Coursework for the certificate is completed online with no on-campus requirement. Students, faculty, and staff maintain contact and interact via the Internet with a user-friendly learning management system (LMS). The LMS provides one location for students to easily access course syllabi and readings; receive and submit assignments and projects; complete exams and course evaluations; and interact with classmates and faculty through discussion postings and private mail messages.

Students can access their course materials anywhere in the world, at any time, as long as the computer they are using has access to the Internet and a web browser. Courses are delivered asynchronously, as contrasted with real-time, and provide students with greater flexibility and convenience than on-campus classes.
