With the demands put on working professionals, online education has become a popular way to earn a college degree. An online education allows you to attend class on your own schedule, from the comfort of your own home or a location of your choice.
At Grand Canyon University, we understand that working professionals maintain a busy schedule, yet many aspire to attain a higher level of education for personal fulfillment or to qualify for promotions and career advancement. Grand Canyon University stands apart from the other online education institutions because we are backed by the history of our traditional campus. Our online classes allow you to study at the times that work for your schedule while still enjoying the close connection with your classmates and instructor via online discussions.Learn more about online degree programs
GCU is home to approximately 8,200 students who live and commute to our 115 acre campus in Phoenix. This smaller, more intimate university in Arizona boasts amenities and facilities found at many larger universities. Over the past few years, GCU has undergone a major campus expansion as our student body continues to grow. In 2015, the university will open its Eastmark campus in Mesa, AZ, housing many of its STEM programs.
Student housing demand continues to grow with the student body. By fall 2014, GCU will have 8 residence halls and two on campus apartments, equipped with sand volleyball courts and resort style pools. In the next 10 years, GCU could have 30,000 traditional students between its Phoenix and Mesa campuses, in addition to 100,000 online learners.
In response to our students' diverse needs, Grand Canyon University is now offering selected degree programs in an evening format. These programs are designed to meet the needs of today's working adults as they balance their work and personal lives with the desire to earn a degree. With programs that meet just one evening per week, students can conveniently integrate advancing their education with maintaining their career.
Developed specifically for working professionals, these evening programs are designed for a specific number of students. By keeping classes small, students will receive individual attention and progress through the program with the same classmates, providing an opportunity to forge relationships that go beyond the classroom.
