We do online differently.

Whether you’re a newcomer to the field or an experienced professional, you’ll still develop essential skills and master the latest technologies in the field. Our program is designed for you to mix-and-match courses and build the curriculum that suits your career goals. We accomplish that through a mixture of synchronous and asynchronous classes, meaning you take some courses when it’s convenient for you. Other classes will require you to meet virtually with your instructor every week. Through this blend of courses, you can take advantage of the flexibility of an online degree and still have the face-to-face experience to fully master the skills for a successful IT career.

At Marquette, you will take all of your classes through Desire2Learn (D2L), an intuitive online learning management system designed to foster collaboration between you, your peers and your instructors.
