As online education becomes more widely accessible, more individuals ask: Which degrees can be earned online?
Your career aspirations and skill set are important factors, but there are numerous options out there ranging from top universities that provide online bachelor’s degrees to technical colleges specializing in online learning or schools dedicated exclusively to it. More choices also give working adults or those balancing family obligations more freedom of choice in terms of location.
Some careers require hands-on learning, which may be hard to come by in an online program. Luckily, however, popular subjects like nursing, business management, finance and criminal justice are easily accessed from an online college.
There are also many two-year certificates online, both as standalone qualifications and as part of larger degree programs, that can lead to jobs such as physical therapy assistants, dental hygienists and sonographers. And for those wanting direct patient interaction there are a range of bachelor degrees such as health services manager or mental health counselor that allow students to do just this.
There are also plenty of online master’s degrees available, covering subjects ranging from law to economics to social work. Many reputable colleges provide these programs online – some even accept students from traditional campuses – while many also allow international enrollments.
