The Internet Is Facilitating Higher Education

graduation cap and diploma

Back in the day, the only way to attend college was to enroll, be accepted. and physically attend. Nowadays it is much easier for students. The computer age has brought education from the classroom into the home via the Internet. Anyone with access to a computer and the Internet can get a degree on line–not only a BA but an MA as well. Many graduates can make the time for higher education this way. No need to spend lots of time and gas traveling, check out the opportunities now.

Not many top ranked schools are offering online programs – Gonzaga University has several online masters programs. The Princeton Review and Forbes Magazine rank it as one of the nation’s best universities. US News and World Report places it as #3 in the West. Kiplinger’s Personal Finance recommends this private institution as a best value. Don’t be hesitant because some people think programs like these diminish the quality of education.

  1. I love e-learning! It is wonderful that sometimes education can be outside of the 4 walls of a traditional classroom (although I love traditional classes also!)

  2. Denise,

    I did my BA traditionally then some of my MA.  I got so tired from family obligations and work that I stalled for a while.  Extension courses got me finished though luckily since I had left my electives until the end.


  3. I think that it is wonderful that these programs exist. My father got his Master’s this way and he would not have gotten one if he actually had to enroll and go everyday.
