Flexibility Helps Make This Program Realistic for Working Professionals

Will I be able to fit my coursework into an already busy schedule? Does working on this degree mean I have to miss professional and personal activities? How demanding will my schedule be?

These concerns are very common for anyone making the commitment to continuing your education. The good news is that online classes offer maximum scheduling flexibility. You can connect with your coursework anytime, anywhere there is Internet access. Start your day an hour earlier, use your breaks or lunch hour, or begin after the kids are in bed.
