There are definite financial advantages to getting a master’s degree. You have the ability to max out on the pay scale. Initially, this was a motivator for me, but once I got into my master’s program and saw how I could apply what I was learning in my classroom, it wasn’t about the money so much anymore.
The online format works best for my busy schedule, they understand that we are busy working adults, so they are encouraging with high expectations. The professors support their students and truly want them to be successful.
