A Villanova Wildcat, Wherever You Are

To Villanova University, our community is what makes the Villanova experience exceptional. Because of that, our online programs are designed to facilitate and encourage a strong community connection and spirit for students who are a mile down the road or across the country. Nearly every course students take at Villanova, for degree completion or professional education, has a live class session with a faculty member. Our faculty generate rich conversation during the live class sessions and utilize the online learning management systems to engage via discussion boards and group projects.

Villanova CPS students build relationships with faculty and their classmates that last long after the course or program has ended.
