Northeastern faculty members in online- and hybrid-based programs integrate their deep theoretical knowledge with strong professional experience. Using the technology tools that have made online education a rich learning environment, they draw from a wide array of resources that enable students to apply new knowledge directly to the problem-solving needs of the workplace.
Our hybrid format—the blending of online and classroom learning—offers students the best of both worlds: the flexibility and convenience of online education and the personal, faculty/peer interaction of classroom-based programs. Most hybrid courses alternate meeting on-campus with online assignments so students can maximize learning on a schedule for working professionals.
By focusing students on the application of knowledge and on 21st century skills such as inquiry and analysis and information technology literacy, Northeastern’s extended model of learning develops students who are able to create dynamic new ideas and new approaches that can change whole fields of endeavor.
