The Office of Blended and Online Learning advances Molloy’s educational mission of academic excellence to support the delivery of high-quality, student-centered programs in a variety of formats by fostering innovative teaching and active learning. Our blended and online learning programs offer you a quality education while allowing you to balance your education with your professional and personal responsibilities. Blended programs can offer a combination of online, hybrid, and traditional on-campus courses. Our online programs consist of only online courses and do not require you to come to campus. 


How do we support blended and online learning?

  • Courses identified as hybrid, online asynchronous, and online synchronous can be found in the Lion's Den Course Search page.
  • We offer a full range of student services and support.
  • Molloy's Learning Management System – Canvas – offers 24/7 technical support for both students and faculty.
  • Molloy faculty are supported in the use of Canvas and instructional technologies to design and deliver blended and online courses.
