Your Degree. Your Experience.

Your master’s program is more than a degree, it’s an experience on which you will build your entire career. Syracuse University’s online master’s programs are designed with you, the student, in mind.

Our programs are developed based on research about how online students actually learn best and how to ensure success in a digital environment. All programs are built around a framework that includes:

Online Coursework

Instead of traditional lectures, you complete your coursework in between live class sessions. All coursework is designed by Syracuse University faculty.

Live Classes That Promote Collaboration

You will attend small and intimate live classes that encourage you to debate topics and discuss current trends and concepts with classmates and faculty.

Application of Skills in Real Time

If you’re taking classes while you continue to work, you can directly apply new skills gained in the classroom to your job in real time and increase your impact at your organization.

Fully Connected to Syracuse University

“Online” does not mean “apart.” Even though classes are online, you will still feel connected to our faculty and each and every classmate you meet along the way.

Accessible and Connected Faculty

In and outside of the classroom, our professors will support your learning and growth throughout the program and into your career. In addition to faculty advising, you will have access to your professors for one-on-one discussion in the digital campus.

Diverse and Driven Peers

As an online student, you will collaborate regularly with talented, ambitious peers living and working around the world. Your classmates will bring their diverse voices and viewpoints to classroom discussions and study groups, enriching your learning experience and expanding your worldview.

Your Classes: Live and Global

Gain the connections and perspectives you need to drive your career forward. Hosted live in a Zoom classroom, online classes serve as a forum to discuss and analyze each week’s coursework, enabling you to absorb the material from every angle.

Your Dashboard: Connection With a Click

We want our online students to focus on the work that matters, so we created a one-stop, one-click dashboard that offers easy access to upcoming classes, coursework and support teams.
