More Mason students are embracing the flexibility of online learning. The university's partnership with Wiley & Sons will remove the obstacles of demanding D.C. work schedules and cumbersome commutes by offering a selection of fully online graduate degree programs
The university’s 10-year agreement with Wiley & Sons will allow Mason to focus on delivering affordable high-quality academics while delegating technical support, marketing analysis and materials, prospective student outreach, and enrollment and retention services to Wiley Education services.
“It is critical to Mason’s long-term strategy of access to high-quality and innovative education," says Michelle Marks, Mason's vice president for innovation and new ventures. "The partnership with Wiley is one critical step to expanding our delivery options,”
The initial master’s programs that Mason will offer through the partnership will be in business, health systems management, health informatics and special education, with certificates in applied behavioral analysis and autism. Programs will be available beginning January 2018 and will expand as additional programs are brought online.
“Students want to be able to fit education into their busy schedules and not be forced to adapt to a more traditional version of higher education. This partnership is about creating options for students, so they can craft a more personal education plan.”
