Online Master's Degree Programs
Our online degree programs are effective, flexible and smart. Unlike a standard online lecture, ASU’s online courses are highly interactive, engaging each student and ensuring the subject matter is fully understood. This structure also facilitates interaction with the highly recognized faculty on campus and classmates to encourage learning through collaboration. It was specifically designed to provide access to the vast academic, research and career resources that ASU offers – to anyone, anywhere.

Proven Job Placement
A degree from ASU is an investment in your future. Top companies around the world actively recruit ASU's graduates. Approximately 90% of ASU graduate students reported as employed or receiving at least one job offer.  ASU’s degree programs equip students with the necessary experience to advance their careers and assume leadership roles. A 2016 study of 310,572 alumni of ASU STEM degree programs found that about 20% are serving in director and executive level positions including 1,086 Executive Directors and 2,090 CEOs. 

Student Life
ASU offers students a welcoming, safe and enriching place to study, work and live. Each of the four ASU campuses offer state of the art laboratories and research facilities as well as amenities such as Sun Devil Fitness facilities, residential halls, dining facilities, student unions, bookstores and tutoring and writing centers.

The university has a rich and vibrant educational environment in large part due to our diverse international student community comprised of almost 10,000 international students from over 135 countries. International students choose ASU because the university offers an excellent academic experience. They also discover a sense of community when they connect with students from around the globe. Many international students also contribute to ASU’s dynamic graduate community and, in return, gain the expert training, mentorship and intensive professional development critical to advancing their careers.
