About Us

Online Masters is a website created and maintained by Matt O’Brien. The purpose of this site is to take a realistic look at what it means to obtain your masters degree online.


I’m not one of these guys who hates the online schools, but neither do I have a rosy picture of the industry. As someone who has obtained their masters degree online, I want this site to be a place where the pitfalls are exposed, good schools and programs are recognized, but most of all where people can come for non-sales motivated discourse about which schools and programs are right for them.


I try to respond to all emails in a timely manner, so feel free to email me questions about the online masters process at: Contact@at@OnlineMasters.dot.org. If you have a question which pertains uniquely to you about an online masters degree, please email me with the subject line “Private Question”. If, however, you wouldn’t mind me sharing your question and my answer with the broader reader base please email me with the subject line “Public Question”.
