What an Online Degree can do for you

by Staff Writers

The myriad of different online universities and schools have opened up doors for students around the country, even allowing people to gain their Masters and PhD in various subjects pertaining to the type of school they are attending.  Online degrees may have seemed to be some sort of scam in the first months of the evolution of online education, but they have since allowed thousands of people to attain degrees that have helped them get ahead in the world.
     
Regardless of the type of degree you are searching for, there is an online program for it.  Arts and humanities online degrees are found in schools such as Liberty University, Full Sail University, and Strayer University.  Each of these schools offer students the opportunity to attain online degrees in various arts-related subjects such as a Bachelor of Science in Religion at Liberty or even a Masters in Fine Arts Media Design in Full Sail University.  Liberty University in particular is one such school which has evolved with technological advances and has thereby transformed from a typical commuter school to an online university in which students from all over can attain degrees from the world’s largest evangelical university.  Having this type of background and support structure is important in attaining an online degree, since this type of university has students both on and off campus. 

While humanities degrees seem to be the “easiest” degrees to obtain and especially complete online, there are other more complex programs such as health and nursing which allow students to complete nursing studies (from Chamberlain College of Nursing) as well as Bachelors and Masters degrees in Psychology (from Capella University and Liberty University).  These degrees allow you to complete a more specialized education at your own pace, on your own terms.   Online nursing degrees allow students to focus on their communication, organizational, and nursing skills while still honing in on those courses which allow students to practice in a clinical setting.  This is nearly a 180-degree turn from what nursing schools were like only twenty years ago, in which students were forced to endure grueling schedules to just complete one year of studies.  The internet and online degrees have thus opened up doors to nursing students who may not have the time to completely focus on school amidst their busy lives. 

There are myriads of other degree programs, ranging from MBAs to I.T. programs, thus allowing students to pick and choose what degrees are most applicable to their situations.  Online degrees have grown in number of the years, thereby allowing students to have opportunities across nearly every type field.  Additionally, all online degrees feature the same target in allowing their students to take their own time in achieving their Associates, Bachelors, Masters, or even PhD.  Online schools have revolutionized the educational field and have thereby allowed students to gain degrees who ordinarily would never have had such an opportunity.
