Pursue a Stanford University Master of Science degree on a part-time basis through the Honors Cooperative Program (HCP). Many courses that contribute to the degrees we offer are available online during the academic quarters they are held on campus. But please note that some departments offer a limited number of online courses and therefore in those cases HCP students must be able to attend classes on campus. For details, check with the department.
