Since the founding of the University of Arizona in 1885, boundless innovation has been a critical part of our academic philosophy. In-keeping with that tradition, we’re proud to offer online programs that deliver focused, practical, modern education in a virtual format, spreading the mission of the UA to students across the nation, even across the world. Online learning allows you to interact with a diverse community of dedicated peers, connecting to people and perspectives that might’ve otherwise remained unknown.
As one of the top 50 graduate education programs in the country (according to U.S. News & World Report), the University of Arizona’s online programs benefit from an outstanding heritage of academic achievement, reflecting the same rigorous standards of excellence applied to our on-campus offerings.
The learning materials provided through our online platform are diverse, dynamic, and engaging. Every piece of content was shaped by expert faculty, all of them acclaimed, recognized educators. Through streaming media, interactive online forums, and direct discussion with peers and faculty, you can develop your teaching skills and complete coursework from the comfort of the nearest computer.
We want to ensure that every online student feels like a valuable part of our student body, which is why we offer several dedicated support services to distance learners.
- Career Services
Both students and alumni can take advantage of our Career Services office as well as Wildcat Joblink. Joblink provides the UA’s student body with access to a number of internships and full-time positions specifically targeted to University of Arizona students.
- Online Library
As an online student, you’ll have complete access to numerous informational databases and resources through our online library service.
- 24/7 IT Support
