What types of students enroll in the MHS Online?
The MHS Online program is perfect for full-time working professionals looking to expand their knowledge or build off of a previous degree, students not local to the University of Florida campus in Gainesville, FL, or anyone else wishing to complete this degree online at their own pace.
Online vs Traditional Student
Students who wish to enroll as an MHS student online can view lectures and access course material online at any time through Canvas (the University of Florida’s e-learning site), while complying with due dates and expectations of individual professors.
Upon acceptance, our MHS online students will be invited to our annual new-student orientation alongside our traditional students. Students will be assigned a faculty advisor for any questions they may have about their academic schedule, career paths, or other relevant concerns.
A key question on many of our online student’s minds is how they will complete the capstone experience. The capstone can be completed at an appropriate agency, department or organization near a student’s primary residence or at another entity approved by their faculty advisor and academic staff.
