The MSCR program is 100% online.
Flexibility in location: There is no need to travel to attend courses. This can save both time and money for busy students.
Flexibility in time: Although courses are run on a weekly format, the work can be done at the students’ convenience throughout the week. Due dates are given early in the course so the student can budget time to complete the assignments. Scheduling events and study times can be much easier with online courses.
Work/family life balance: Attending school online offers working adults and parents the benefit of remaining employed and allows for more time with their families.
Diversity: Students in this program will interact with other students across the country and globe. Our students’ diversity across cultures, viewpoints, and experience, enables learning from one another in the collaborative and interactive environment our online program provides.
Technology: Students will become proficient in the use of many diverse technological tools throughout the program. These skills will enhance students’ marketability in the workplace as well as in future careers.
Collaboration: Taking online classes in a virtual environment allows for collaboration among peers. Group assignments, projects offers students the opportunity to voice their opinions and perspectives, as well as learn from the wealth of experiences from their peers.
Self-Discipline: Due to the nature of the online learning environment, self-discipline in completing assignments and meeting deadlines is critical. Such discipline is one of the strongest predictors of success in the program and translates very well to both current and future work positions.
Real-life application: Attending a virtual professional program allows for real-life experiences and potential workplace scenarios to be incorporated into the classroom. Students can incorporate their experiences into their assignments and discussions, thus adding value to what they are learning.
