Students have frequently contacted me about pursuing a second degree, whether it is a second associates or bachelor’s degree. Perhaps they want to gain new skills and broaden their knowledge in two different fields. Other times, students are looking to make a career change and have identified that a second bachelor’s degree can help them in that goal. It’s important to assess which situation best fits your academic and professional goals, and decide if a second degree, second area of study or graduate degree is a better choice for you.
Somewhere along the way, the giving season became a time of discounts, deals and savings. This year, let’s give bigger, better and smarter by giving back. Join us for a new national day of giving deemed #GivingTuesday on December 3rd, and show the world that when we unite together, we can fulfill dreams.
