One Year Degrees Now a Distinct Possibility Online for Adult Learners

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va., Aug. 6, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Gone are the days when earning a college degree takes years and requires sitting in a classroom for hours each week. With the explosion of accelerated degree programs on the online education scene, adult learners seeking to enhance their resumes can now complete an undergraduate or graduate degree in almost any field in as little as one year's time.

The Possibility of One Year Degrees

Colleges and universities are continually coming up with new and innovative methods for enabling their students to finish their degrees fast. Some of the most common methods include accelerated courses and semesters, the acceptance of a previously unheard of amount of transfer credit hours, and carefully scheduled and managed lock-step course work to ensure students finish degree requirements within their desired time frame. Some programs are even willing to offer credit on a case-by-case basis depending on the student's situation.

The Right Fit for Adult Learners

Accelerated degrees are the perfect match for adult learners who can't afford the time it traditionally takes to complete a degree. Many programs allow students to maintain their job at part-time or even full-time status so that they aren't losing money while pursuing their degree. By completing their degree online, adult learners also experience the convenience of studying from home. Because these accelerated programs cater to working adults, the intimidation factor of going back to school is also reduced a considerable amount.

Degrees Offered at All Levels

If students bring something to the table before applying to a program—whether it be previous credit, work experience, or another way to receive transfer credit—they will likely find that any level degree can be completed in as little as one year. If it's not possible to finish their degree in 12 months, they can probably do it in 18 months. A bachelor's degree is probably the most difficult degree to complete in one year, but if students already have an associate's degree under their belt and pursue accelerated courses (including during the summer), it is possible to finish their degree in that time frame.

For adult learners seeking a graduate degree for promotion or new job opportunities, there are a variety of graduate level degrees that can be completed in one year without having to enter the program with anything other than a bachelor's degree in the field. One year MBA degrees online, for example, are really popular right now.

Online Resources for Adult Learners

For adult learners looking to complete any level of degree in one year's time, there are a variety of online resources available that can help them. Accelerated-degree.com is an informative online tool where students can learn about how acceleration works, the possible ways they could earn their degree in as little as one year, and other tips and tricks for earning an accelerated degree. Users of accelerated-degree.com can also discover information about what careers and salaries are available with specific degrees and get matched with their ideal online program.
