UCLA is committed to providing engaging and innovative online courses that enhance learning and provide greater flexibility for students. Online courses, degrees and certificate programs are offered by a range of departments at UCLA, and this site provides a starting point for exploring the exciting programs that translate UCLA¹s world-class education into the online environment.
Hybrid courses typically combine online instruction with a reduced number of face-to-face class sessions while fully online courses provide instruction, interaction and assessment entirely in the virtual environment. Some courses draw on innovative software, gaming simulations and other digital tools to present material and foster discussion. While online courses provide new flexibility and opportunities for learning, they are academically-rigorous and require the same investment of time and work as a face-to-face course.
Most online courses are listed in the UCLA Schedule of Classes. For more information on online learning, visit our FAQ page.
