Number of Eastern Online Programs Rises to 35

As the demand for online education has continued to rise, Eastern University has continued to meet student needs by adding diverse and innovative online programs to its wide array of offerings. The recent addition of a Doctor of Education (EdD) program brought EU to a total of 35 online programs.

Eastern's online degrees encompass a broad spectrum of disciplines, including business, counseling, education, nursing, seminary, and global studies. Many degrees are available fully online, while some utilize short on-campus residencies.

Professors in Eastern's online classes utilize a variety of cutting-edge tools to foster student connection and enjoyable learning, including Eastern's state-of-the-art online learning platform, Brightspace, and a user-friendly video conferencing program, Zoom.

One student remarked, "Through our weekly discussions and group projects, I have gained valuable insights from my classmates, and actually feel much more 'connected' than in any traditional class I have ever taken.” (Brent Linkstrom, Online MBA Student)

Eastern's most recent TV commercial, "Where Will Your Classroom Be?", focuses on the flexibility online programs provide students to earn their degrees "without missing the moments that matter." (See video at top.)

As one of the forerunners of adult education in Philadelphia, Eastern University continues to carry on its legacy of providing transformational education in the formats that best accommodate the changing needs of students.
