Online Learning

Lasell's online programs allow students to collaborate with peers and faculty with our "high touch" philosophy. Students participate in authentic learning experiences and develop well-informed voices as they progress through their chosen program.

Online faculty complete a seven-week online certification course prior to teaching in Lasell's Online program, and regularly attend workshops designed to support the College's learner-centered philosophy.

Student community and faculty presence are the hallmarks of our online course design.
