Online Options for Graduate Programs are Extensive at Holy Family

Online__Graduate_Programs_scaled.jpgLong before COVID-19 entered our lives, Holy Family University has offered a broad array of masters and doctoral level degree programs in a fully online format. Online graduate programs are designed to meet the needs of busy professionals and others who aspire to advance their careers, but may be unable to attend graduate school on campus.

“We’ve been presenting graduate programs online at Holy Family since 2016, and we continue to expand our portfolio,” said Karen Galardi, EdD, MBA, Dean, Graduate and Professional Studies. “These programs deliver the exceptional quality that’s reflective of our on-campus and blended programs, while allowing the flexibility to accommodate challenging schedules. In the midst of the coronavirus pandemic, we view our online degree options as more valuable than ever.”

Within the School of Education, Holy Family offers both a Master of Education Program (MEd) and a Doctor of Education Program (EdD). Our Master’s program includes initial certification – Pre-K through 4 – for individuals making career changes, as well as additional certifications for current teachers.

Our School of Business Administration offers two online options for graduate students – a Master of Business Administration (MBA), which can be completed in as little as 12 months, and a Master of Business Administration for New Professionals (MBA), which can be completed in just 14 months. GMATs and GREs are not required.

In the School of Nursing and Allied Health Professions, Holy Family offers a Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) available to residents of Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and Delaware. There are two different tracks – the MSN to DNP Leadership Track, which can be completed in as few as five semesters, and the MSN to DNP Leadership Track for the Advanced Practice Registered Nurse (APRN), which can be completed in four semesters with part-time study or three semesters with full-time study.

“Holy Family’s online graduate degree programs provide a rapid path to furthering an individual’s professional and career goals, and at an affordable price,” said Dr. Galardi. “We’re exceedingly proud of the caliber of our online programs, as we are of the countless achievements of those who have earned their graduate and doctoral degrees with us.”
