Country Doesn’t Stop My Education

Using the internet to take classes is a really great idea if you have children as I do. I took a few classes using wild blue satellite internet as an undergrad and I really enjoyed the freedom. During my undergrad the classes I took were through my regular commuter university, but using wild blue Tennessee service to do my masters completely online. I am even taking my classes from a university that is about a thousand miles away from my home. Since the program is set up entirely online I never have to visit the brick and mortar campus at all.

When my husband and I first moved to our new home with our three small children I decided I wanted to get a master’s degree. Since I wasn’t a resident yet I would have had to wait a year to take classes at the nearby university for in state rates. After I thought about it I decided to look into online classes, this way I could get my Master’s and stay home with the kids.

Thanks to wild blue satellite, (we live so far in the country we couldn’t get cable) I have had no problem meeting the demands of an all internet course load. I am going to school online, full time while my kids sleep. I am getting a full accredited Master’s in Education. The classes are no more difficult than they would be in person and I have the freedom to work at my own pace. I will never go back to a traditional campus setting.
