Benefits of Online Learning
Every day, more and more people like you are discovering the benefits of online learning. Let’s face it—life is busy! Between jobs, family and friends, we’ve all got plenty of responsibilities. Continuing your education at a regionally accredited, premier online University with no physical residency requirements gives you the flexibility you need to manage your personal and professional responsibilities while you work towards achieving your academic and career goals.
“I didn’t want to have to rely on group projects and other people to do my work. That’s not how I function. That’s not how I work. So I was looking for a very individualized experience. There is a lot of self-learning that has to be done and self-discipline and motivation, but that’s how I’m comfortable learning so it’s a perfect fit for me"—Jannine Wilmoth, PhD in Business Administration, Homeland Security Student
Rather than being tethered to a specific schedule where you have to drive to a (hopefully!) nearby university for class, online degree seekers are able to learn with more flexibility when it comes to choosing when and where they want to work on their weekly assignments. This is ideal for students with unconventional work hours, those who work full-time, or those who are serving in the military or raising a family.
In fact, online programs can greatly increase your ability to move forward with your education goals while maintaining your lifestyle:
- Work full-time while you take classes.
- Complete weekly assignments on your schedule without neglecting personal or professional obligations.
- Share in a global experience while you study from wherever you have access to the Internet.
- Learn from first-rate faculty teaching from all across the globe.
