Fully Online, Top-Ranked Master’s Degrees Now Available on edX

Today we are proud to announce that edX launched nine new Master’s degree programs. These online programs offer high-quality master’s education in a flexible way and at disruptive price points, in subjects that address today’s global skills gap. This new offering marks an important milestone for us, as we continue to reimagine education through innovative, stackable credentials that address the needs of today’s changing global workforce.

The Master’s degrees on edX come at a time when the workplace is changing more rapidly than ever before. Employers are in need of highly-skilled talent, especially in fields most impacted by advances in technology. To address this worldwide global skills gap, edX has partnered with Arizona State University; Curtin University; Georgia Institute of Technology; Indiana University; University of California, San Diego; University of Queensland; and University of Texas at Austin. These international institutions specialize in highly in-demand subjects, such as data science, cybersecurity, computer science, analytics and supply chain management.

We built these programs for you, our learners, so that you can earn a top ranked graduate degree, at a disruptive price, in a flexible way. According to a study by Georgetown University, the average Master’s graduate increases their salary by $17,000 per year, yet the average Master’s degree costs between $30,000-$120,000. The average U.S. graduate debt is $57,600. Master’s degrees on edX cost between $10,000-$23,000, significantly reducing the cost burden for our learners, making a top quality graduate degree possible for countless more learners.

Additionally, the Master’s degree offering on edX builds upon our innovative MicroMasters® program, which many of you are familiar with. Similar to how a MicroMasters program can stack into an on-campus Master’s degree, a MicroMasters program can also stack into a fully online Master’s program. This allows you to start engaging with Master’s level curriculum right away in order to determine if both the online learning experience and the subject matter are a fit, before the Master’s application deadline. Taking the MicroMasters program first can also help to strengthen your Master’s degree application. Further, the MicroMasters program is a valuable career transformation tool on its own, providing you with valuable standalone skills and credentials, and recognized by industry leaders for real career relevancy.
