Academic excellence that’s flexible and accessible.
Continuing Education at Worcester State University puts academic excellence at your fingertips and on your computer screen. Through our credit-bearing online courses, you can take a class from the comfort of your dorm room, apartment, or home office at the times that suit you best. Because you can complete assignments at any point during your busy day, you don’t have to worry about missing class because of inclement weather or work and family obligations.
The structure of each online course varies according to the instructor. Some courses are conducted entirely online; others are hybrids, requiring you to visit campus at least once during the course. We offer online courses in most academic areas, and we use an online learning management system called Blackboard. This virtual classroom system hosts every component of your course—from discussion boards and assignment submissions to tests and final exams.
