 Distributed Distance Learning model for graduate degrees

Distributed learning is an approach that does not require a specific, physical location in order to facilitate learning. Some of the characteristics of a distributed environment include:

  • The incorporation of technology, in-person, distance-oriented and other interactive tools to support various learning styles.
  • An integration of day-to-day life (work and non-work related) into the learning activities.
  • An emphasis on collaborative learning by peer and community interaction.

Is Distributed Learning Right for Me?

To begin assessing whether distance and distributed learning might be right for you, ask yourself these questions:

  • Do you wish to pursue your PhD, EdD, Master's or a certificate without moving from your home?
  • Is continuing your career while you earn your degree or certificate important to you?
  • Are you a self-directed learner?
  • Do you appreciate choice and flexibility in a learning environment?
  • Are you comfortable with—and interested in—collaborating with others via on-line and off-line technologies?

As a student at Fielding Graduate University, our programs allow for you to continue your career and, more importantly, your life.
