Distance Education Degree

In the last several years, education has changed dramatically. In many fields, a high school diploma is not enough to get a good job. However, earning a college degree is become easier than before.

Earning a distance education degree comes with this newer age of degrees. Distance education is learning that comes from teaching methods that are delivered by technology instead of in a traditional classroom. You may also have heard a distance education degree called a correspondence course degree. While earning a distance education degree used to mean corresponding through the mail, now these programs are done via the computer.

A distance education degree is not a new idea. The University of South Africa had offered them since the 1940s. The largest distance education university, the Open University in the United Kingdom opened in 1969. In the 1990s, the boom in distance learning has caused several schools to start offering a distance education degree program.

While a distance education degree requires you to be a self starter and to be able to stay on task, the programs are designed to be easy to complete. They are structured to make them easy to read and complete. Depending on the course, you may need to utilize radio, television, audio-video conferencing, or online and computer-based programs. Some schools may also provide you with hard copies in the form of textbooks or workbooks. You will often be able to communicate with your professors via email or instant messaging.

A distance education degree program can work for students of all ages. You might be a recent graduate trying to save money by living at home. You may be in the career field already and want to further your education while still working. You may be a stay at home mom who plans on returning to work, or a retiree that just wants to learn something new.

You can choose to get a distance education degree through an online only school, though many renowned universities also offer distance education programs. You will be able to choose from a variety of subjects, including: accounting, business management, electronics, criminal justice, veterinary technician and more.
