    Greetings All, Name here is Stephen, out of Jefferson City, Missouri.

    I'm enrolling in Jones International University's BBA-Generalist (Bachelor of Business Administration-Generalist) program. I'm segueing out of a bad experience at a local technical college to a completely online curriculum, this primarily so I can work and *actually make money whilst going to school!*

    I'm aware of JIU's regional accreditation which is partly why I chose it. (Incidentally, I am also aware that there are many fine schools with National Accreditation, and That's Just Fine Too. :) The CHEA doesn't discriminate.)

    It is my hope that I may be an active and contributing member of these forums, and I also welcome any pertinent advice that would help me in my decision making processes whilst enrolled at JIU, or any other programs that I will attend in the future.

    Please feel free to ask me anything. I am a very open person, and respect fully all opinions, peoples, creeds, orientations, etc. I consider myself a diversity-based individual, and am eager to learn about other cultures, which is why I'm focusing on business, as it is truly a global phenomenon that is bringing together may diverse peoples, focusing upon a common bond: Self Sufficiency!

    I look forward to sharing.

    Warmest Regards,
    Stephen

    Hello there,

    My name is John Price. I'm a mid-career professional looking to transition into collegiate-level teaching. I've taught before, both in my graduate program and as an adjunct at a community college, but it's been quite a while. Over ten years, in fact. I stumbled onto this site while looking for something else. I was browsing around and noticed Dr. Bear, and a couple other interesting posters, and I got hooked. Thanks for the amazing info, everyone!

    Hello

    Hello everyone.

    I am close to getting my Bachelor's from Columbia College online (Missouri).

    I am thinking of continuing with my Master's. I have been looking at several programs, specifically a MBA from U. of Louisiana Monroe, Masters in Quality Assurance (CSU Dominguez Hills), and Masters Regulatory Affairs (San Diego State U).

    All are within my price range so I do not go broke going for these programs. I do not need the degree for my current job, but am looking to branch out to other fields in other industries.

    Hello all!!

    I just finished my BS-IT Management at WGU! Looking to start my master's in the fall. However, I won't be attending WGU. Still undecided!

    Greetings; my name is Fred.

    I'm joining up with the hopes to get an economical plan for me to get a Bachelor's degree. By economical, I mean both in my time and my money. Both are in short supply these days, as with most of us.

    My education background is a combination of formal, work training, and experience.

    I have an Associate Degree from Lansing Community College, from 1992. In addition I have other credits there outside of that degree program, which was in Aviation Maintenance Technology.

    I have been working in my profession of aviation for almost twenty years now, and I've been blessed with a range of activities to have participated in. Standard Technician stuff, such as sheetmetal and mechanical work on the airplanes; Inspection work; Technical publications work, making FAA compliant manuals and forms; and training, where I got to be an instructor on various work related topics.

    Outside of that more career oriented group, I have a serious hobby with my writing. I mostly write short form things, such as poetry, or serialized stories. I have published my first book recently, a monster volume collecting all my poems from 2011 (one a day!). That was published both in physical soft cover, and in electronic format for the Amazon Kindle. I did all the editing and formatting myself. It didn't turn out half bad. But I'm not here to pimp my book.

    Given all the above things I've done or accomplished, I really want a Bachelor's degree. I feel that not having one, tends to limit my employment opportunities somewhat. For example: I applied to Northern Michigan's Aviation College to be an instructor. I had hoped they would cut me some slack for not having a four year degree, since maybe I could get one there while I was in residence, but no such luck. Four year degree required. Other things have also passed me by for similar reasons.

    Hopefully, someone can read this, and give me some ideas. There must be a relatively easy way for me to achieve a four year degree, given what I've done over the last 20 plus years. But I really don't know which route would fit my limited means the best.

    Thank you so much for reading this!

    Fred

    I am an IT professional with over 10 years experience, never got the chance to properly go to Uni... now things are better financially so I got my Bsc in Computer Information Systems and now planning on doing my Masters Degree, hence joining this forum and asking for some advice before making the final decision...

    Thanks Chip. I just registered and I am not sure how to navigate around this site.
    I hope somebody will read this post.

    This is what I am looking for: a Ph.D program that can link art, psychology & spirituality.
    I am bilingual in spanish and English. I would appreciate some guidance. Thanks.

    I think you'll want to look closely into each of these:

    Saybrook University
    Union Institute & University (you could be the next Clarissa Pinkola Estés? but better!)
    Fielding Graduate University
    Pacifica Graduate Institute
    California Institute of Integral Studies
    Sofia University (California; no relation to the one in Bulgaria. formerly the Institute of Transpersonal Psychology.)

    Either all, or a very big most, of these involve some, "short" in-person residency requirements, usually in intensive multiday workshops distributed through the degree.
