Stay-at-home moms and dads already work a 24-hour shift and hardly have time to complete personal goals. If finishing a bachelor degree is one of those goals, an online program is great for the modern house wife or husband. Online courses can be taken at night or on weekends. Coursework can be done during your child's naptime or after bedtime. If you plan to go back to work when the kids go back to school, earning credits toward a degree or enrolling in an online degree program will keep you educated and informed about the changes in your career industry.
