The Internet offers hundreds of online bachelor's degree programs. How do you know which one is right for you?
First, select your major. Choose a topic that interests you and will help you advance in your chosen employment field. Some B.A. programs — liberal arts and social sciences — open up a broad range of job opportunities, while Bachelor of Sciences programs may relate more specifically to a particular field.
A B.S. will help if you decide to obtain your master's in fields such as information technology, healthcare, engineering and biotech.
A B.A. degree opens up career opportunities in communications, sales and marketing, business, teaching and more.
Western Governors University offers accredited bachelor's degrees in Business, Education, Information Technology and Health Professions.
Before you select an online university, speak with advisors at the schools under consideration. Ask for a list of graduates and where they found employment after earning their degree. Pick the online bachelor's degree program that best fits your career goals.
Also ask about course offerings. Similar topics in different schools may use very different approaches. Do your research to select not only an online bachelor’s degree program that fits your personality and goals, but an online college that will help you fulfill those goals.
