Let’s face it – the economy can be a real downer. Most likely, you’re facing some financial challenges and life changes you had not expected, and this can take a mental and emotional toll. It can help to have something positive to focus on – and a goal to work towards, one that might help better your situation. Going back to school may be just what you need, and here’s why this could be the perfect time to do it.

An increasing number of college and universities are offering courses – or even entire degree programs – that can be completed without the student stepping foot in a classroom.Share on Facebook
