***online university***

My husband has been working towards his Master’s Degree through an online university and in about 2 months will be totally finished. I am so proud of him for taking it upon himself to put in the time and effort to do this, with the intention to get a better job that pays more money so I am hopefully able to stay home with the kids full time. I know it’s not the perfect time with the economy in the shape that it is in to hope for a new job, but we are hopeful that there is the perfect employment opportunity out there for him, one that would only be possible with a Master’s Degree. There are a number of online university’s, and even though Western Governors Online University is not where he obtained his degree, with the research I have done, I can see that they look like a great university to invest in as well. With online degree programs like, nursing, marketing, and science….just to name a few. An online course program is great, because you can work on your studies when YOU need to work on them and when you have the time to complete the work. Of course, there are still deadlines, but the stress and time involved with going to the campus is eliminated, and with the cold and blustery winter upon us, that is a HUGE PLUS!
