The Benefits of Online Learning

Saint Francis University implements the latest e-learning innovations and offers them to Master’s in Health Science online students. Faculty connect with students through the Blackboard Technology course management system, which includes discussion forums, on-demand lecture presentations, streaming video, group collaboration software, and other integrated software appropriate to individual classes.

The primary reason students choose the health science online degree courses from Saint Francis is that they can get the same exceptional education that campus students receive, but with a greater degree of flexibility. Here’s why it could work for you:

  • The health science online degree courses make it easier for students to balance time between coursework and their personal or professional schedules. Students can attend the “classroom” from anywhere they have Internet access.
  • Course material is often delivered in several different formats, so you can choose to earn your Master’s in Heath Science in the manner that best suits you; lectures, reading, interactive activities, and more.
  • It is less intimidating to contribute in an anonymous online classroom setting, and for this reason many students are surprised by the level and depth of participation.
  • SFU’s health science online degree professors are accessible through many online channels including discussion boards, chat rooms, email, and sometimes videoconferencing.
