• Franciscan University, Online

    Learning is always personal.

    Whether it takes place in a classroom or “the cloud,” education is about people: your teachers, your classmates, and you. It’s about your shared desire to grow in knowledge, discover truth, and help one another better serve God and others in the world.

    At Franciscan University, we understand that and have crafted an online learning experience that keeps the person front and center. Taught by the same world-renowned professors who teach on campus, you’ll participate in a personalized, collaborative learning environment that will challenge you intellectually, form you professionally, and help you take both your career and your life to the next level.

  • How do Franciscan Online courses work?

    Powered by Blackboard, the market leader in Online Learning Management Systems, our online courses feature interactive tools that function as a virtual classroom. You will collaborate with professors, other class members, and study partners.

    Weekly course content includes recorded, professional lectures from our expert professors—the same ones who teach on campus here in Steubenville—as well as guest speakers. Also, live webinars, wikis, podcasts and vodcasts, video/audio emails, blogs, and other tools facilitate one-on-one interaction with professors and fellow students on the material being discussed.

    And, of course, dedicated technical and academic support is always a phone call away to answer any questions not covered in the comprehensive Online Orientation Course designed to prepare students for this online educational experience.


    Franciscan’s Online Programs are Fully Accredited

    North Central Higher Learning Commission and Ohio Board of Regents accreditations mean that Franciscan online courses adhere to the same rigorous academic standards as all of  Franciscan University’s programs.
