What Are the Advantages of an Online Education?
People believe in the value of a college education, but they also know that it requires time and dedication. Maybe your busy lifestyle or job prevents you from attending class or working toward a bachelor’s or master’s degree. Here are some of the top reasons that people don’t wish to start, continue, or advance their college education:
- Their job has demanding, inflexible, or irregular hours.
- They can’t quit their current position to take classes or study for a degree.
- They have pressing family obligations that make traveling to a university difficult.
- They’re overwhelmed by choosing the next step in their education.
If you’re nodding your head in agreement, then you’d appreciate the benefits of an online college education. Online degrees are a great choice for those in medical and health positions, military occupations, travel-related careers (pilots, flight attendants, etc.), sales and communications fields, and for people in management roles or who are business owners.
What Sets RMU’s Online Programs Apart?
Your Education on Your Own Time. Convenience is the leading advantage of online classes and courses. If work and travel obligations make it impossible to attend traditional, on-campus classes, online options are made especially for you. The courses are available 24 hours a day, and the flexibility they provide have turned thousands of RMU students into RMU graduates.
Range of Degrees and Courses. RMU’s online offerings include eight undergraduate degrees and ten graduate degrees, as well as continuing education, certificate programs, and professional development courses.
Flexibility. Students can earn their degrees through either a part-time or full-time program, in the day, or in the evening. New classes begin every eight weeks, and you can choose a completely online structure or a combination of online and on-campus programs.
Real World Experience. RMU’s programs all have a professional focus to help you find the best job that you can, and our online faculty—the same faculty members that teach on our campus—have work experience in their field.
Support. Every online student is assigned an advisor who can help students register for classes, apply for financial aid, or help them through the online system. They’re here to answer questions six days a week for 12 hours each day.
Recognition. In addition to recognition as a well-known “brick and mortar” college, Robert Morris University has consistently been ranked by as a top accredited online school with special recognition for our online master’s degree programs, our online undergrad psychology degree, and our online health administration services degree.
