Move will offer multiple advanced online degree programs.

online-degree2U, Inc. is partnering with NYU’s Steinhardt School of Culture, Education, and Human Development to launch multiple online graduate degree programs.

The first three online programs – expected to begin classes in 2016 and early 2017, pending approval by the appropriate university and accrediting bodies – include graduate programs in speech pathology, counseling and guidance, and an advanced clinical doctoral degree in occupational therapy.

The partnership represents the Steinhardt School’s first online degree programs (other NYU schools offer online programs). NYU Steinhardt expects to announce additional technology-based programs in teacher education and other disciplines. The School will also lead a university-wide effort using data from these courses and others to conduct research on effective online learning.
