Do you remember the board game called Life? It was a favorite of mine. You pick your favorite color car and then put a little blue or pink driver in it. Advancing through the game, you add family members, earn money, and even have life “experiences” along the way. Looking back at the game though, one thing sticks out at me. Relatively early on you have to choose either to attend college or enter the work field. I think these days, it would be more up-to-date to allow people to choose college at various times throughout the game.
I know it used to be expected that people attend college right after high school. Those that opted to start a job or family instead were generally expected to forgo furthering their education. I’m happy to say that there are so many ways for people to start or continue their education, even being a non-traditional student. I’ve always maintained there should be no stigma to bettering yourself, whenever you’re able to! I strive to learn things as often as I can and luckily in this day and age there are many ways to accommodate that learning.
One such option is Concordia University Wisconsin Online. It’s designed for busy adults, people that delayed college for any reason or were unable to go the traditional university route, or anybody that wants to continue their education, especially Moms! They know how difficult it can be to juggle family, careers, and personal lives. They have specifically designed online programs relevant to the careers of tomorrow and made them accessible from home. With Concordia University Wisconsin, you can expect a personalized approach on every step of your educational journey. Their world-class Student Support Advisers take a genuine interest in your progress and aiding your education achievements.
Concordia University Wisconsin understands you have priorities and they feel there’s no reason to sacrifice your role as a mother, sister, wife, friend, neighbor, etc. in the pursuit of higher education. Whatever your career of choice, these study offerings have been tailored to help you keep life in balance. There are a variety of options including full degrees from bachelors to doctorate as well as free MOOCs or email courses. There are even low price Academies where you earn digital badges. With over 50 different degree programs, Certificates, and individual courses, you are sure to find the best fit for your goals.
Some people might be concerned that online education is different from other colleges. Concordia University Wisconsin is a member of The North Central Association of Colleges and Schools and is accredited by the Higher Learning Commission of the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools. Their instructors are currently working in their area of expertise and are required to hold a minimum of a Master’s degree or higher. They have experience and knowledge in their industry which is then taught to you through cutting edge theory and practice.
What I appreciate is how flexible the courses are. They have several options from self-paced, to those that are organized into groups and work together throughout the course of the program. There is also a collaborative program that turns in assignments weekly. The length of time it takes to complete a degree varies based on a few criteria. The program requirements as well as the transferable credits are taken into consideration when determining how long it takes to finish. Speaking of transferred credits, Concordia University Wisconsin accepts up to undergraduate credits from a 4 year school and up to 70 credits from a 2 year school. They even accepts military and work related credits as well.
