Your Graduate Student Experience
As a student in this online graduate program, you'll experience a unique combination of cutting-edge online learning technologies and dedicated, personable instructors.
Our Faculty and Staff
Each of our online professors is carefully selected from our faculty. Together, they recognize that online students need to feel like part of a learning community and to be in touch with their professor. Our online courses create a collaborative "online community" where you'll interact frequently with the instructor and with fellow students. Each professor maintains a schedule for responding to questions and consulting personally with students. In addition, our support staff will welcome you to your online program and guide you through to graduation.
Online Learning Technology
We make your online experience as seamless as possible. Our online courses use state-of-the-art technology that offers a consistent format in every class. Your online account provides access to everything you need, including your course syllabus, staff information, discussion boards, and information about Wheelock support services (including financial aid, writing help, academic advising, disability services, and access to our extensive library-physically and online).
Your courses will involve interactions with your class and instructor in chat rooms and discussion forums. Group projects help you connect with classmates, and some courses include real-time video conferencing. Our courses foster collaborative learning and are designed for adult learners with real-world experience and adult obligations. Most courses have weekly assignments to ensure you make consistent progress toward graduation.
Each online course is condensed into eight weeks of instruction. We find that most students spend around 10-12 hours each week on coursework, though this varies somewhat from person to person.
