Learning Format

An Online Format Made With YOU in Mind

Merrimack knows each student learns in their own way. Our program was designed to provide content and learning in multiple formats which includes smartphone-friendly segments so students can engage in coursework on the go, while getting ready to go to work in the morning, riding the train home, or while winding down at night.  For students who have struggled with traditional lecture-based programs in the past, Merrimack’s “Pathway Degree” provides a refreshing and enriching experience.

This degree is highly customizable, allowing students to choose areas of study that meet both their personal goals and career interests. Additionally, students can also design their own specialization for the program in consultation with faculty. Utilizing this convenient and engaging online program format, along with the customizable Elective component, will help you work with your personal success coach to not only agree on a program path that appeals to your professional goals, but one that also appeals to your interests.

How will the program delivery impact me?

Your online experience is enhanced with the flexibility that comes with the Pathway program. From engaging with classmates to completing coursework around your busy life, you will quickly realize nothing is stopping you from completing your goals. When you become a student, if you have challenges with coursework, you can always connect with our dedicated faculty who are ready to provide advice and support to help pave your pathway to success.

Learn at Your Pace

Our learning format helps break up your course segments into different presentation modalities that allow you to learn in an asynchronous format, which simply means that you can attend class when you want, and pick the best times for you to focus on education.  Whether you are caring for a friend or relative, a working professional, or taking the kids to an after-school activity, you now have the ability to schedule your coursework in the morning, in the evening, or even on the weekend.  Our classes also offer synchronous (live online) sessions as well, but they are not required.  The Pathway Bachelor Degree Completion program puts you in control of how you plan your learning.

Work Directly with Faculty

As you progress through your classes, it is important to remember that our faculty is invested in helping you succeed.  We encourage you to get to know your faculty and interact with them during office hours and many can also be contacted via email and phone.  Merrimack faculty work with students often, and have helped students through various challenges.  We encourage you to use them as an additional resource as you progress through your program.

Network with Classmates

Online learning presents you with a unique opportunity to engage with your classmates. As some online learners are working professionals, this program gives you a platform to interact with fellow students on best practices, or to simply network with each other.  As you continue to build engagement with your classmates, you may even look to progress through the completion of your degree together.   This valuable class interaction may even help to further enhance your overall Merrimack experience.
