Walden University

Walden University was founded in 1970 by two teachers seeking a better way for adults to pursue advanced degrees without leaving the workforce.

That vision meant rethinking a traditional classroom to allow deeper access through distance education. Throughout the years, their online higher education community has grown to include more than 47,800 students and more than 79,800 alumni worldwide.

Why Walden University?

A snapshot of what the online portal at Walden University looks like.

Walden focuses on four important qualities when creating their courses: quality programs, a focus on relevant, actionable learning, superior student support and a path for lifelong learning.

Walden believes that education happens throughout life and doesn’t stop when you graduate. There are always chances to educate yourself and expand your skill set.

Walden’s online learning goes beyond the computer. Their online portal allows for connections and networking opportunities with peers and faculty alike.

Additionally, they provide their students with many chances for internships to experience first-hand the field that they are studying. They also have what’s called “Virtual Field Experience” that allows students to observe and learn from experts in the field.

Many of the programs culminate to a capstone project that gives students the chance to showcase their newly gained knowledge in a succinct way.

You can also take your learning on the go with their MobileLearn technology. Instead of being limited to only using your computer or tablet to access course materials, you can also access everything you need through your phone! You can view university messages, Walden e-mail, class podcasts or courses and much more through their free Walden app.
