Earn a master's degree, a graduate certificate or academic credit in individual courses in a way that works for you. Unlike other online degree programs, CU Boulder’s distance education courses allow you to watch classes live, actively participate in classes from afar and even attend lectures on campus where possible.
You will have the same access to faculty, class peers and staff support. More importantly, you will receive a rigorous, high-quality education and the same diploma earned by residential CU Boulder students. Continue your education and professional development on your terms.
How Distance Education Works
Connect to the vibrant Boulder campus from anywhere to participate live in the classroom. Take advantage of real-time lectures and personal interaction with professors through a suite of online delivery options, customizing your degree to fit your schedule. You will interact with CU Boulder's nationally and internationally recognized faculty, who have built a global reputation for outstanding teaching, research and creative work across more than 150 academic fields.
