Engaging Online and On-Campus

As an MSA student, you have access to all of the resources provided on our Amherst campus whether you attend classes in person or online. Academic advisors and career coaches are readily available to you by phone, zoom or in person. Our courses and programming offer a range of ways to engage with our outstanding faculty and other students through online, real-time office hours, optional, live online class meetings, or in-person class meetings.  

Small class sizes and active group discussions enable you to connect with classmates and develop relationships that persist beyond your degree. Our strong Isenberg alumni network is always an email or post away.  The same faculty that teach on-campus, teach our online MSA courses, with some class sections offering a flexible format and a combination of on-campus and online students.

Student Connections

Isenberg MSA Student Connections provide many opportunities for students to tailor their MSA experience. Student Clubs open the doors to relationships, leadership development, and professional growth.  Students are supported in pursuing additional certifications that can enhance their career prospects.
