Virtual Environments

SNHU’s degree programs are designed to help learners launch or advance their careers.

That’s why in programs like game programming, information technology and finance, SNHU provides learners with access to a virtual environment. You’ll work with industry-standard applications and within simulations that allow you to develop the skills that prepare you for tomorrow’s workforce demands.

What is a Virtual Environment?

SNHU’s virtual environment is a cloud-based platform that provides access to software applications, simulations and virtual desktops.

The environment is reliable, secure and easy to use, and it allows for more collaborative sessions between students and instructors.
