    I’m interest in master on line.

    • Bill says:

      Dear Nancy,

      Online education has become a more popular option for many students attempting to balance a professional career and family and social lives. An online masters is generally more affordable and convenient, giving you the opportunity to work on your degree from home and around your own schedule. That said, while online degrees are becoming a popular alternative for many students, nothing beats a classroom education; many universities offer one-year and two-year degree programs designed to help students earn their masters around their own work schedule, and all else being equal, employers are far more likely to hire individuals who have gone through a classroom program than those who have earned their degrees remotely. Our recommendation is to pursue a masters degree in the traditional, classroom format, and, if necessary, augment your schedule with online courses for convenience; again, many universities will offer a blend of classroom and online courses to help students who are trying to earn a masters while maintaining a professional career amid other obligations.

      Hope this helps!

      Bill
