A Balanced Approach to Learning

Marlboro helps working adults balance their academic endeavors with work and life priorities through an effective learning model that blends in-person classes and online study. The in-person schedule for each of our Graduate and Professional Studies programs varies based on the student group. Our master’s program in health care administration, for example, is geared toward the regional nursing community and meets once a week at night. Our MBA program, on the other hand, is designed for professionals with a traditional Monday-through-Friday schedule and meets once a month for weekend intensives. To see the schedule for the degree or certificate program in which you’re interested, please visit that particular program’s page.

Project-Based and Relevant

All of our programs emphasize learning by doing. Rather than simply be lectured to and tested, you will apply new concepts and skills through experiential learning activities and projects. Your program will culminate in a major body of work (either a capstone project or teaching portfolio) that demonstrates mastery of your program area. Our curricula is taught and designed by faculty who are expert practitioners of the subjects they teach, so what you learn will be relevant and immediately applicable to your current work environment.

Collaborative and Connected

As a graduate student at Marlboro, you will be surrounded by other motivated learners, each with a unique set of experiences, strengths, and insights to bring to the table. You will learn from each other during team-based projects and other collaborative activities and develop real bonds in the process. By program’s end, you will not only have a new circle of friends but also a network of professional peers to bounce ideas off of, call on when you need support, and partner with on new ventures.
