In 1970, two educators were inspired to create opportunities for working professionals where there previously were none. Our founders saw the potential of distance learning to help adult learners earn advanced degrees. That’s how Walden University was born. Ever since, we’ve helped reshape access to education.
If you’re a working professional or otherwise in need of flexibility—we’re here for you. Walden has the bachelor’s, master’s, doctoral, or certificate program you need to change your world and the world around you.

Your life is busy, but that doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice your education. We’ve helped more than 140,000 professionals find the way forward. And we’re ready to empower you
