AU offers over 700 courses and 50 undergraduate programs, seven master's degrees, and two doctorate programs. Not surprisingly, one of the doctorate degrees is in distance education itself. Dozens of diplomas and certificates are available in areas as wide ranging as financial services, computing and information systems, public administration, and counselling.
AU faculty members are leaders in their field of study, researching and developing new ways to deliver their courses online. Our staff includes three Canada Research Chairs and a number of professors researching topics as diverse as the northern lights, Canadian social policy, and climate change. As a student, you'll be assigned a tutor who'll be your direct contact throughout your course. You'll also benefit from the added educational experience of discussions with fellow students from across the country and around the world.
