Online Vs. On Campus Education

While online learning has been around for a few decades now, the last few years have seen huge growth in the number and quality of online degree programs. Nearly one-third of all students now take at least one course online, according to the 2010 Sloan Survey of Online Learning.

Doctoral Degrees

If your career path has you on track for studies at a graduate school, you may be considering a doctoral degree program. The doctorate is considered the highest degree in many fields of study in the U.S. Stemming from the Latin docere (“to teach”) a doctorate qualifies degree holders to teach at the higher education level within their specified field, or to practice certain professions, such as law and medicine.

Master's Degree

If you’ve completed your Bachelor’s Degree you may be considering whether to undertake further studies toward a graduate degree such as a Master’s Degree. Master’s Degree programs provide the opportunity to gain advanced knowledge in specific topics and skill areas and are required for entry into some professional fields (see the list of careers below).

Associate Degree

If you’re just getting started on your path to higher education, congratulations! Making the decision to go to college -- whether a community college, online college, or traditional on campus college or university -- is one of the best things you can do to improve your chances of finding a rewarding career. One of the first degrees you might consider is an associate degree (typically a two-year course of study). An associate degree can be obtained through an online education or at an on-campus college or university. Let’s take a closer look at the degree’s requirements and outlook.
