Flexibility Designed for Working Adults

Request Information

When it comes to online education, one size does not fit all. At Walden, you can choose the learning option that works best for you.

A University for Working Professionals

As an adult learner, you have your own learning style. You also have a full schedule. That’s why we offer online education options designed to fit your needs. In addition to Walden’s standard course-based experience, you can explore a range of learning options—including Tempo Learning®—that help you balance school with life’s everyday demands.

Course-Based Learning

If you prefer an instructor-led approach and learning on a predetermined schedule, the standard course-based format, available in all programs, may be a good choice for you.

Additional Options

Within our course-based programs, we offer further program-specific options1 designed to meet your unique needs. Some of these include:

  • Accelerate Into Master’s (AIM)
  • Fast-Track and Accelerated models
  • Advanced Standing
  • One-Credit Option

To learn more about these program-specific options, contact your Walden Enrollment Specialist. They will walk you through the available choices for the program you’re interested in.

Tempo Learning®

Tempo Learning® is an alternative way to earn your Walden degree. It’s different from our standard course-based learning because you can work at a pace that makes sense for you, and progress once you’ve shown you understand a subject. With Tempo Learning®, you have the flexibility of online learning, plus the ability to personalize and control the length, cost, and pacing of your program.
