Making education happen on your time.

The Internet and other advancements in electronic communications, communities and culture have revolutionized distance learning. Right now, online education is where accurate information and robust networks combine to deliver content for either education or business/professional development.

No longer an ancillary or experimental option, today’s online learning harnesses educational content and courses designed specifically for this full-fledged mode of study. Gone are the days of traditional classes being squeezed into online formats.

  • Access from anywhere in the world, at any time
  • Independent study for those with a less traditional, more entrepreneurial mindset
  • Collaboration thanks to serious teaming technology

What Students Say about Distance Learning

"One of the primary reasons I decided to pursue my masters degree at Ashland was the option of taking some classes either all online or partially online. It is important for me to finish my degree in a timely fashion and Ashland's program has allowed me to do this. Being an international teacher and administrator I wanted a program where I could take classes in the summer and be able to take a class or two during the fall and spring semester all which is available at Ashland."
