Learning modes that fit your life as you forge your future

Advancing in your career by earning a graduate degree can't require retreating from your home and work responsibilities. Lasell University offers two flexible course delivery formats - 100% online and on-campus, which blends online and in-person learning to fit the busy lives of working professionals.

Both formats provide a leading education in highly interactive and engaging learning environments, and with direct access to academic resources, faculty, and classmates. 

Online learning

All online courses at Lasell use Canvas, an easy-to-use software platform that includes access to all course materials, file management and sharing capabilities, discussion forums, library databases, and more. Lasell's online orientation which includes a self-paced tutorial will prepare you to make full use of Canvas.   

Most online courses are offered in an accelerated 8-week format, ideal for students who enjoy a fast-paced and more independent learning environment.  Some programs such as the Professional MBA offer online courses that are 16-weeks in length.  Online study is asynchronous, meaning you can log on and do your work when it's most convenient for you - anytime and from anywhere.  

On-campus learning

Management, Education, and Communication programs, are offered in the on-campus format, blending evening face-to-face meetings with online instruction, resources and assignments. Offered in a choice of eight- and 16-week sessions, these courses offer flexibility and opportunities to engage in a traditional classroom environment.
