Chris Knox had a full and busy life — a professional job that required a lot of travel, a wife and three young children. But Knox, 38, wanted a bachelor’s degree. The only way he could fit earning such a degree into his packed schedule was to complete it online. Knox, who already had two associate’s degrees, enrolled in the online Bachelor of Management Arts program at Charleston Southern University two years ago. Now, when he gets home from work at his job as an operations manager at an engineering firm, he spends some time with his children, who range in age from 3 to 7 years old, then he retreats to his home office to work on his degree. He’ll be done with it in May. “I would not have been able to complete my bachelor’s degree without the distance learning option,” he said.
