Online Master's Degree Programs
Enrollment in online college courses has hit an all-time high, with 6.7 million students enrolling in at least one online course at a university in the fall of 2011 — a number that represents 32 percent of all higher education enrollment for that semester. That same year, one out of every 11 advanced education degrees — including master’s degrees and doctorates — were earned online.
Online master’s degree programs are particularly popular, as they alleviate the time constraints of professionals who want to change or advance their careers while meeting their responsibilities at work and at home. Students who enroll in online master’s degree programs are often looking for quality, flexible education programs that allow them to complete coursework around their own schedules. The best online master’s degree programs also feature small class sizes and require students to get real-world experience in their local communities — outside of the classroom.
