Social change is at the heart of Waldens mission. Since our founding in 1970, weve attracted a community of lifelong learners who share a common desire to make a difference. To support their efforts, we provide a learning experience that encourages them to pursue and apply knowledge in the interest of the greater good. Our students, alumni, faculty, and staff bring our mission to life through research, conferences, and service projects focused on effecting positive social change.

Our online degree programs are developed to advance your knowledge and help you apply that knowledge in ways that impact your profession and your community through:

  • Quality programs

Walden University was founded by two teachers seeking a better way for adults to pursue advanced degrees without leaving the workforce. That vision meant rethinking a brick-and-mortar classroom to allow broader access through distance education.

We offer over 75 online degree programs with more than 385 specializations and concentrations, all designed to help professionals gain the knowledge they need to have a real impact in their lives and the lives of others.

Our program areas include:
