Many people in their 30’s, 40’s and 50’s are realizing they need to get a degree to survive in today’s competitive workforce. The skill set one needs today to “make it” in the workforce is very different from the skill set needed just ten, or even five years ago. If you are feeling behind the times when it comes to the technology superhighway and feel you’ve been passed over for a promotion at work due to a lack of knowledge regarding computers or social media, it may be time to explore your options regarding college degree programs.
If you already have a degree but would like to pursue a different field or if you have no degree and feel you must earn one to keep (or find) a job, an online degree program at Colorado Christian University may be what you’re looking for, especially if you’re already working full time and cannot attend classes on campus throughout the week. CCU offers a number of online degree programs, and there’s a very good chance there’s one in your field or one that you’re interested in pursuing.
The College of Adult and Graduate Studies at CCU offers a full range of programs online including:
- associate degrees
- bachelor’s degrees
- master’s degrees
- certificate programs
Students pursing an online degree program at CCU get the same robust educational experience as those students who attend classes on campus. Online students will interact with instructors and other students via real-time chat, emails, web cam, and whatever ways you have available. You will get assignments via the Internet and submit your work to your professors, who will also be available to you for questions, clarification and any assistance you may need. Online students don’t miss out on anything except the experience of sitting in a classroom and interacting face-to-face with others.
If you’re working full or even part time, you will find the online degree option a very appealing one as it will allow you to continue to work and will afford you the opportunity to better yourself by earning a degree from a university that has been given an A grade by ACTA, the American Council of Trustees and Alumni. CCU was also named a “College of Distinction” this year and has experienced record enrollment numbers. Add in the launch of a new website, and you have a top-notch school that is attracting the best and brightest from around the globe.
Some of the online degree programs offered fill the need for a high demand of workers. Recently, we posted a blog about the high demand for a health care administration degree, and this is degree is available online at CCU. A fairly new degree program, a master’s in organizational leadership, is also available online.
