Founded in 1970, Walden University enters the new millennium as the most respected and experienced distance-delivered graduate institution. Walden continues to serve the distinct educational needs of adult learners by providing students the opportunity to earn a graduate degree without sacrificing professional commitments.
Walden’s uniquely-tailored curricula affords students considerable flexibility in shaping their course of study. Walden learners engage in self-directed research in consultation with a faculty mentor and in scheduled classes made convenient through modern telecommunications. Students apply what they learn directly to their professions. Indeed, the “scholarship of application” is the essence of the Walden experience.
Walden University prepares and encourages scholar-practitioners to affect positive social change in the world around them. By seeking a better understanding of the human condition, Walden students prepare to improve it. Walden graduates have become leaders in taking on important issues such as violence in the United States, health care reform, educational reform and the social responsibility of corporate America.
