  • “UNMC is the perfect place to get evidence-based training and to reach national standards.”


UNMC offers three graduate degree paths:

The graduate programs deliver curriculum in a hybrid format utilizing group and individual online classes. The blend of asynchronous and synchronous classes offers you convenience and flexibility. Asynchronous classes offer independent study throughout the semester at a time of your choosing. Synchronous classes are scheduled on designated dates and times, are live-streamed and allow real-time interaction with expert faculty and peers. This style of curriculum delivery allows you to participate in the program from where you live. On-campus requirements will vary by program and specialty.
