UMass online enrollment increased by almost 40 percent over the last 5 years at UMass - Mike Masciadrelli, WWLP

More students at UMass are going online to get their degrees. More than 75,000 students enrolled in UMass online courses last year, up 6 percent from the previous fiscal year. “Sometimes online classes can be a little less rigorous, you don’t have to go to class all the time,” said Hannah Boyd, Junior at UMass Amherst. “It just makes it easier to get those extra credits.”  UMassOnline offers 150 degrees and certificate programs, along with more than 1500 courses. One of their more recent online programs allows students to obtain a graduate certificate in business analytics at UMass Amherst. http://wwlp.com/2017/08/29/more-umass-students-are-getting-their-degrees-online/
