Having offered this program on campus for a decade, UMass Lowell has converted this degree into an online format — maintaining the same high-level academic standards and experience. The unique feature of this online program is that during the academic year all courses are delivered through the live online format (students attend class online in real time at specific days and times each week) with summer courses offered in the traditional online format (students complete coursework each week as their schedules allow). Live online courses replicate the live, instant interaction of a traditional in-person classroom while still offering the convenience of online learning.
