Accredited Distance Learning Master's Programs

Distance learning master's programs – also known as online master's programs – represent an advanced level of academic achievement for web-based students. Just like traditional master's degree programs, they take about two years of post-baccalaureate study to complete and often require you to write a master's thesis. But unlike on-campus programs, you can work on your distance learning master's degree from home and at your own pace. This can be a significant advantage, especially if you are a professional with responsibilities such as a career and family.

Distance Learning Master's Degree Program Options Continue to Grow

In years past, online learning was generally designed for those seeking certificates and undergraduate degrees. But as web-based courses have proven that they can provide quality education, distance learning master's programs have become much more popular. Online Master of Business Administration (MBA) degrees are probably the most common, as there is a huge demand for business professionals with advanced credentials. Other distance learning master's programs that are in demand include web-based Master's of Education (MAEd) and Master's of Public Administration (MPA) programs. Experts in higher education expect this trend to continue, bringing thousands of new master's programs online by 2020.
