The times they are a changing, and Saint Mary’s University of Minnesota is changing with the times.

In the spirit of innovation and providing access to adult learners, Saint Mary’s now offers fully online master degree programs in 4 areas with many more on the way.

The following programs are currently offered 100 percent online:

M.A. in Human Resource Management
M.A. in Organizational Leadership
M.S. in Project Management
M.A. in Special Education

What this means is that the excellent educational programs offered by Saint Mary’s has expanded to anyone living anywhere.  This is possible through the use of the Apple iPad and a special app. Saint Mary’s University of Minnesota became the first institution in the country to offer a full-service app specially designed for adult learners in online graduate programs.

Students enrolled in these online master’s programs at Saint Mary’s receive iPads preloaded with the app.  A “one-stop shop” learning experience, the app includes all coursework and enables students to communicate instantly with instructors and classmates.

Launched in the summer of 2012, this revolutionary program is designed to further meet the needs of busy adult graduate students, many of whom must balance schoolwork with full-time jobs and families.

Students enrolled in these programs live throughout the world, including numerous states, Guam, Afghanistan and Ecuador.  And, even though the students live miles away, they are experiencing the same level of educational excellence and close interaction with the Saint Mary’s faculty members who are also working professionals in the field in which they are teaching.
