Whether you're looking to earn credentials to boost your standing in the job market or want to finish a degree you started long ago, University of Maryland Global Campus offers flexible learning options, making it easy to fit higher education into your busy life. You can choose to attend class entirely online or in a hybrid format that combines online learning with in-person instruction.

Hybrid classes are a great option if you prefer in-person learning but don't want to travel to an on-site location as often. Hybrid classes typically meet once a week, with additional instruction and interaction provided in the online learning environment. Because the majority of UMGC students are working professionals, we offer courses in the evening, and some locations even feature weekend classes. Learn more about flexible scheduling.

Online Options

If you don't find hybrid course locations near you, don't worry. Nearly all of our 90+ degrees, specializations, and certificates are available entirely online, giving you the ultimate convenience of studying whenever you want, whether you're a weekend warrior, early bird, or night owl.

In class [at UMGC], you actually get to do more hands-on stuff, so it helps you be able to bring that over into whatever organization that you work for, because you're physically doing it in class, and then you can turn around and do it at your job too.
