Distance Learning at Fordham University
"Distance learning is a venue consistent with the hallmarks of a Fordham education. Personal attention can be transferred to wherever our students are: in the classroom, in the dormitories, in their homes…and in international countries."
Stephen Freedman, Ph.D.
Senior Vice President/Chief Academic Officer
