Masters Degree Online

It seems that technology is being used more and more to simplify our lives. We can do all of our banking, shopping, bill paying and communication through the computer. It has gotten to the point that you can communicate with almost anyone you want to without having to verbalize a word, it can all be done through the computer. In some ways this is efficient, however it does not help people practice social skills and it seems like people’s social skills are declining.  

Many people are deciding to gain their advance education on-line as well. In some cases this is a good thing, like a young mother that cannot afford the day care or a person that lives in a rural area without transportation; however I feel that getting a degree in this manner produces people that are not used to dealing with others. As an educational advisor I tell students to make an effort to gain some of their credits in a traditional classroom. I find that the interactions that happen between instructors and students and between students are an important part of the education process. If all this interaction is completed on-line communication skills are lost. Gaining a masters degree on line is a better alternative than gaining your associate or bachelors degree online. 

The reason I feel this way is that by the time you are getting to the level of a masters you have had some classroom or work experience that have allowed you to practice communication and social skills. Working on a masters degree online is a way fro a professional to continue working while they are advancing their education. This is convenient and less disruptive because not every university offers master degrees in all areas of study. If you can work on your masters degree online with a university that is a distance from your home that would make commuting impossible it saves the disruption of a move. When looking for a program that will allow you to complete a masters degree online make sure you take the time to find out how many of their graduates are working in the field that they earned their degree in. 

It is important to check out the reputation of the school so that you know that potential employers will accept a degree from that institution. Many of the on-line schools have wonderful programs that are extensions of their campus classes, but others have been developed only for the internet and so not actually have a campus. This means that there is probably not a great deal of support staff to give you good service. Do your homework prior to getting into a program so that you are not wasting time and money.
