Certificate to Master’s Degree: Multiple Degree Path

Degree Path at CCUColorado Christian University prides itself on offering multiple degree programs including associate’s degrees, bachelor’s degrees, master’s degrees and even certificates of study. More and more students are choosing a multiple degree path, which means they start with a certificate program or an associate’s degree program and work their way up into the bachelor’s program and eventually a master’s degree. If you already have a bachelor’s degree, this multiple degree path would not be necessary, unless you were changing careers and wanted to start at the very beginning of your new field’s educational path.

Online bachelor’s degrees are especially appealing to busy adults who may have full-time jobs and full- or part-time family responsibilities. Thousands of students have earned their online degrees from CCU without ever having stepped foot on campus! Online degree programs allow the flexibility to study at your own leisure, and with evening and weekend classes offered, you won’t have to miss work to pursue your degree. Faculty members are very understanding and accommodating when it comes to working with adult students who have jobs and families, and small class sizes allow for a great deal of individualized attention.
