Yes, the UNH Online programs are designed for working professionals. The majority of our classes are asynchronous. This allows you to complete coursework and move through modules on your own time (within given deadlines). However, if the online program includes a field internship or requires clinical hours, please refer to the program-specific page for additional details.
Although class size varies between student cohorts, we deliberately keep our class sizes small so that you enjoy a quality online learning experience. You'll have ample opportunities to form relationships with your student cohort, receive individual attention from your instructors, and support from Program Director, Advisor, and the Student Success Coach Team.
You will have a unique username and password to log onto our learning management system called Canvas (myCourses). The Canvas dashboard makes it easy to move between your assignments, quizzes, and discussion boards. Before starting your courses, we suggest you review both the minimal technical requirements and the IT team's computer software and hardware recommendations.
We design our online programs for ongoing engagement with your instructors and student cohort by using discussion boards to host lively conversational exchanges. Program instructors make themselves accessible to answer questions and provide academic support. Our graduates often tell us they benefit both professionally and academically from the high level of communication.
You will have access to an advisor, program professors, administrative staff, and a wide range of university resources, to support your success. Additionally, our Student Success Coach team provides support from your initial inquiry right through your graduation.
Your diploma does not specify that you completed an online degree. All UNH graduates receive the same degree whether they studied online or on-campus.
