Online Learning

Adler University approaches online learning with the same commitment to academic excellence and student support that has been the hallmark of our 65-year history. Our innovative online graduate courses deliver an engaging, interactive learning experience designed to accommodate your busy schedule.

Our online courses are eight (8) weeks in length. Each week, students are expected to review the course materials, participate in learning activities, and complete required assignments. Our convenient asynchronous learning model, in which you can complete course requirements at any time within a specific date range, allows you to work at your own pace, around your own schedule.

Our easy-to-use online learning system—Canvas—allows you to explore course materials and interact with instructors and classmates through a variety of web-based tools and features:

  • Audio and video lectures and presentations
  • Video conferencing
  • Discussion boards
  • Document downloads
  • Interactive games
  • Simulations and role-playing
  • Online chats

Cohort Model

Every student progresses through our online graduate programs as part of a specific learning group called a “cohort.” We strongly believe this unified group approach is the best way to enhance the learning experience of each candidate, to encourage in-depth discussions related to coursework, and to create professional networking opportunities.

Student Support

Online learning offers a great deal of independence and flexibility, but that doesn’t mean that you’re alone. Our online student body is supported by the same administrative and academic staff who serve our on-campus students. Your instructors are also available to answer your questions, provide more information, and connect you with additional resources to help you succeed. In addition, your cohort classmates will be a source of ongoing support and collaboration as you progress through your degree program, and well after graduation.
