Suffield University offers degrees for working adults

Suffield UniversityIt’s becoming increasingly important to have a degree in order to achieve any significant level of success in your career. While some people manage to find success in their field without the benefit of a degree, the workplace is becoming more competitive. A degree in any field offers a distinct advantage. But, as people grow busier each year, taking the time to study for a degree is increasingly difficult.

Bridging the gap between higher education and working adults, online education and distance learning programs offer the flexibility people need to pursue their degrees. Of the many educational institutions helping people earn advanced degrees, Suffield University is one of the highest-profile programs. In this article, you’ll learn more about Suffield University as well as why some people have recommended others to avoid the school.

Which Degrees Are Offered?

There are a huge assortment of degrees available from Suffield University. Among them are degrees in Accounting, Civil Engineering, International Studies and Telecommunications. This is merely a fraction of what is available from the school. If you wish to pursue a degree that is not currently offered by the school, you can simply put whatever degree you desire on your application. Students can pursue Associates, Bachelors, Masters and even Doctorate degrees in many of the majors.

What Is Required To Earn A Degree?

Suffield University has a flexible list of requirements for each degree that they offer. There is a significant weight placed on what they refer to as “work/life experience.” For example, to earn an Associate degree, a student can either have 2 years of work/life experience or 1 year of such experience along with 30 college credits.

A Bachelor degree can be earned by having 4 years of work/life experience. Alternatively, students with only 3 years of experience can earn a Bachelor degree with 30 college credits. If that student only has 2 years of experience in the same field as their major, 60 college credits are required to earn the degree. Master and Doctorate degrees require similar combinations of life experience and/or college credits.

Should You Attend Suffield University?

Ultimately, your decision of whether to earn a degree from Suffield University should be based upon the purpose for which you intend the degree.
