Online learning advances the same powerful education found in our traditional classrooms and enhances the student experience through providing flexibility and promoting collaboration.
Without having to relocate or leave full-time jobs, our online master’s programs bring students remote access to the Lynch School of Education and Human Development and its faculty.
Courses designed and led by Boston College faculty are available on computers, tablets, and mobile devices. Learn from anywhere.
Classes include synchronous sessions, taught in real-time, and asynchronous instruction, which can be accessed at any time. Within the virtual classroom, students post questions, reflect on lessons, and work alongside peers and faculty.
The tools that support our online learning platform are designed to enhance collaboration and deepen the online experience. In the virtual classroom, faculty facilitate discourse through on-the-fly breakout rooms—conceptual round-tables where small groups of students participate in exercises, review material, and prepare questions for class-wide discussion. Similarly, virtual study rooms give students versatile opportunities to meet with classmates or receive personal feedback from instructors.
Online learning offers an excellent alternative for serious-minded students, either working or remote, to connect with a like-minded community of scholars and pursue a master’s degree.
Graduate students have access to academic and personal support and receive guidance on graduation requirements.
Faculty advisors help students navigate challenges encountered throughout the program.
