Students are increasingly turning to online education to complete their studies. Because Faulkner University believes in accommodating students where possible to help them earn a degree, we offer online master’s degree programs. Here’s how these and other online offerings can make life easier for students, whether they’re traditional or non-traditional, full-time or part-time.
One of the main benefits is the ability to have a more flexible schedule. Being able to listen to recorded lectures and communicate with professors via email means that each online student can participate in classes around his or her unique schedule. Students who have part-time or full-time jobs or other responsibilities, such as caring for children or aging parents, for example, can shift their schedules to accommodate coursework when they are able.
This flexibility opens the door for more individuals to complete undergraduate and graduate degrees. A student working a day shift can listen to lectures in the evening. A parent caring for children can watch lectures when the kids are in school. For individuals like these, online flexibility makes higher education possible.
The ability to complete online master’s degree programs from home is an incredible advantage for some. It can simplify matters, including logistics and expenses. There’s no need to commute to college, at least not on a daily basis. There’s no need to live in dorms or purchase a campus meal plan. Getting a degree from home means students can focus on academics.
Finally, many online students enjoy the life balance they can achieve while completing their education from home. Some students value the comfort of familiar surroundings. Others appreciate the ability to work towards a degree without needing to change their daily routines. Still, others feel they can achieve greater life balance, putting academics aside to focus on family, work, recreation, or meditation when needed.
At Faulkner, we offer many online master’s degree programs in a variety of subjects, including counseling, humanities, teaching English, Christian ministry, and elementary education. A representative will be happy to share more information about our programs and answer any questions.
