There was a time in the not-too-distant past when young adults completed high school, moved swiftly into a job or trade apprenticeship, started a family, or – entered a four-year traditional university to work toward their college degree.
Enter the modern age, where higher education has received a much needed facelift.
By the Numbers
There are currently 2.6 million students pursuing an online degree. Of these millions of learners, 56% are employed full-time, and 16% are employed part-time. These nontraditional students take their education seriously, enjoy lower education-related debts than traditional students, and can continue to advance their careers – all thanks to the modern evolution of higher education. In addition to online learning options, some of the most advanced schools, like Brandman University, offer blended programs that combine face-to-face instruction with virtual learning to accommodate to the schedules of busy adult students. For more stats and to explore the benefits of the modern day classroom take a look at the following infographic created by the team at Brandman University, a private, non-profit, accredited university.
