Having completed two degrees online and being in the process of getting a third, I am a firm believer in this method of education. I earned my Associate’s degree this way, then went on to complete my Bachelor’s, and am now getting my Master’s — all without setting foot on campus at any school. And each online degree I’ve received has served as a stepping stone to bigger and better things, so I recommend this route to any adult looking to improve their career prospects.
One of the better online programs I’ve heard about is from Western Governors University. WGU is a fully accredited degree-granting institution that has an excellent track record when it comes to serving nontraditional students. All WGU programs are accelerated, meaning you can complete an online business degree or get your teaching license in less time than it would take for an on-campus student, and the tuition is far more affordable than at comparable schools. Plus, financial aid may be available to qualified students, so that could lower your costs even more.
These days, competition for jobs is tougher than ever before. You need the right qualifications to get your foot in the door, which is where Western Governors University can help. Check out the school’s website for more information on whichever degree program you’re interested in, and start building a better future today!
