No matter what stage of life you’re in, one thing is certain. The traditional academic experience, however enriching it is, takes up a lot of time.
If you want to advance in your field, but struggle juggling classes with being a parent and a working adult, how do you make it work?
Fortunately, there are affordable online degree programs throughout the country that offer online college degree courses, and courses on a campus community school near you during evenings and weekends. There is a way to earn your college degree without having to divert attention away from your current responsibilities.
There was a truly inspiring article published by The Daily News today that dealt with this very subject. The article is about Debbie Pinson, 39, works full time and is the mother of a 13-year-old daughter. Evening college degree programs weren’t a viable option, as Debbie didn’t want to sacrifice her evenings.
A community college near Debbie offered a new sort of “hybrid” curriculum that suited Pinson just fine. Sunday college education courses would be held at a nearby open campus school, each class lasting three hours. Debbie then had to fulfill three additional hours of distance education degree program through the course of the week.
Debbie works in customer service management, and said “I’m looking for new opportunities,” she said. “I want to invest in me.”
Whatever your current commitments, you owe it to yourself to further your education. Whatever field you’re interested in pursuing, earning your degree online or at a Campus School near you could change your life, tremendously.
