Online learning provides for flexible scheduling and balancing the needs of family and work.

“I have chosen to take a hybrid class due to the convenience of juggling a full time job as well as obtaining my masters degree in Healthcare Administration. Hybrid classes allow both in-class meetings as well as online learning making it easier to obtain a day-to-day job and to obtain goals through flexibility.”
