Overview

If you haven't heard, the future of higher education has arrived. Computers and other technologies have made it easier than ever for you to make graduate school a reality by bringing the classroom directly into your home. About 55 percent of colleges in the United States—and plenty abroad—offer some type of distance learning degree program.

The Best Distance Learning Graduate Schools shows you how to find exactly the program you're looking for and answers to all the questions you may have along the way: What method of delivery (Internet, videocassettes, etc.) is best for me? Can I get credits for my career experience? Do I need to travel to campus at all? Can I design my own degree? It also explains how schools are accredited, and how to avoid rip-offs and diploma mills.

This edition includes an information-packed directory of 195 accredited institutions that offer graduate degrees via distance learning.
