Which Online Degree Program is Right for Me?

by South University
October 1, 2012

Our online degree programs offer a convenient way to achieve your academic and career goals. With flexible scheduling, no commute, and access to a wider variety of programs, studying online makes good sense.

South University’s online programs include associate’s, bachelor’s and master’s degree programs in psychology, legal and paralegal, information technology, healthcare, business, criminal justice and nursing. When it's time to select a program, ask yourself a few critical questions before making a decision.

Does the Course Structure Meet Your Needs?
Online programs enable you to meet multiple life demands. You can study after work, on the weekends or after the kids have gone to sleep. Our programs use sophisticated technology to deliver information and assess your grasp of the material. For example, in our Consumer Behavior and Marketing in the Hospitality Industry course, students watch videos to learn about various communication strategies, and then answer questions about how to apply each strategy.

To learn how our online programs are structured, visit our online classroom demonstration page.If you have specific questions, request information from our admissions representatives, who are prepared to assist you.

Consider Your Ultimate Goal
If you're just starting out and hope to climb the corporate ladder in the business world, you might apply for the Associate of Science in Business Administration or the Bachelor of Business Administration program. If you already have a bachelor's degree, then the Master of Business Administration (MBA) program may be your best choice. Always align your academic choices with your eventual career goal.

Research the Employment Outlook
For some students, choosing the right online degree program may be first and foremost about earning a better salary or ensuring job security. For example, medical and health services managers are expected to see an employment growth of 16 percent between 2008 and 2018. This is greater growth than all other occupations. If you're interested in job security, our Master of Business in Healthcare Administration may be your ideal program.

Once you've chosen a South University online degree program that meets your needs, it's time to apply and get started!
