Why Miami Online?


Quality Programs

Deemed an original Public Ivy, Miami University has a long tradition of academic excellence that took root over 200 years ago when Miami first opened its classroom doors. That quality instruction continues today. The esteemed faculty who teach on campus are the same faculty who teach in Miami's online courses and bring the same commitment to excellence to their virtual classrooms. The 2022 U.S. News & World Report ranks Miami in the top 5 for undergraduate teaching among national public universities.

Personalized Attention

By design, classes are limited in size to ensure personalized attention to each student. Miami continues to emphasize the close interaction of faculty and students, which has a known impact on the timely completion of degrees for all students (significantly underrepresented students). Our online programs will provide you with the support you need.

Programs That Fit Your Schedule

We know how busy you are and want to partner with you to accommodate your schedule. The flexibility of online learning allows you to complete courses at your our pace from any location, at any time of day or night, without ever stepping foot on campus.

Online learning at Miami is available 24/7 – any time, any place, anywhere. Distance learning allows you to establish a learning path customized to your schedule regardless of location. This flexibility means you can continue a full-time job or an internship across the globe while (virtually) attending the same exceptional classes offered at Miami.

Career Success

96% of 2017–2018 Miami's Oxford graduates were employed or furthering their education by the fall of 2018. Our graduates also make a difference in the organizations they work for. While we know and appreciate the great value of a liberal arts education, a Miami graduate is prepared for a job and a career. Our students are ready for that next promotion, their first taste of leadership, and to continue growing and evolving toward their definition of success.

Global Perspective

Miami is committed to advancing global learning, which is why the latest Institute for International Education report on the number of undergraduate students studying abroad ranks Miami 4th among public doctoral institutions nationwide. The latest figures show that more than 55% of Miami's students study away or abroad, making online learning an essential component of their academic experience. This untethering of students from the physical classroom opens up opportunities to pursue internships, work, or travel in any part of the world while continuing to complete classes.

The Ability to Change or Impact the World

Miamians are strivers, seekers, and catalysts. Our mission is clear: we empower students to make a difference. It starts with our dedicated faculty, and it leads to incredible success.

The value of a Miami degree and the flexibility of an online or hybrid program can be a life-changing, transformative experience that empowers students to make a more significant impact in the world. Since Miami emphasizes personalized, engaged learning, students are not just knowledgeable in their field(s) but also leaders, innovators, changemakers, and problem solvers.
