Back when I was working on my masters at a school of public health, I had to fight to be able to take my courses on a part time basis instead of full time like everyone else. Why? If I wanted an education, I needed to work to support myself and cover the costs that grants and loans didn't.
Fast forward to today and we have online programs. I think not only about needing a flexible schedule for those who have to work, but what about those in rural or remote areas who can't leave to go to school for family or cost reasons. I moved back and forth between New Orleans and Baton Rouge, but I was young and single.
So, I'm happy to share this list of Online Masters in Public Health Care programs. I'm on the faculty for two of these - Concordia University Nebraska and National University, but not in the Public Health Program.
There really is no reason not to advance your education with the flexibility of today!
