UNH Online Mission

The objective of UNH Online is to foster the growth of online courses and programs at the University of New Hampshire in order to make the high-quality courses offered by UNH more flexible, convenient and accessible throughout New Hampshire and the region.


The University of New Hampshire (UNH) is the public flagship institution in New Hampshire. As a research intensive, doctoral institution, UNH is dedicated to high quality education and research. UNH Online continues this tradition of excellence with our online programs. Experience excellence from a Top 50, land, sea and space grant university - no matter where you are. 


UNH also seeks to establish online programs and certificates in the professional and graduate program areas. These online programs and certificates will serve working professionals, offering them the flexibility and convenience of online learning and the quality and integrity of a distinctive education guided by a distinguished faculty.

Importantly, the University of New Hampshire is committed to a guiding principle that its online courses and programs produce the same learning outcomes as its residential courses and programs produce. It is a reflection of the distinctive character of the university. Strongly committed to the vital role it plays in preparing leaders for a challenging world, undergraduate education has been and remains a central mission. Quality professional and graduate programs contribute to the breadth of opportunities offered by the university. Widespread applications of cutting edge academic technologies, pedagogy deeply rooted in what we know about learning from the cognitive sciences, and a nationally recognized faculty make for a rich online learning environment that serves the educational needs and plans of both undergraduate and graduate students.

UNH Online extends the reach of the University of New Hampshire to worlds beyond its residential campus. It truly is a gateway to the life of the mind at UNH.
