Receiving a college degree has never been easier due to the availability of online college degrees. Not every online college is reputable or accredited. However, here are the top five accredited online college degrees.

The University of Phoenix is a popular accredited school. My sister in law received her teaching credential here. Education is a good field to get into because of its stability and good benefits. Also, while it is hard work, the concepts are not too difficult. Thus, if you listen, do the work and collaborate online, you will be able to earn this degree.

One good thing about the University of Phoenix is that you work with other students by interacting online. You also get feedback from instructors. Another plus is that the times are flexible.

You can’t go wrong with a degree in business economics.

Ashford University has been around since 1918 and they have a “graduate-degreed faculty with real world experience in the fields they teach.” Another plus is that Ashford allows you to transfer up to 99 semester credits.
National University-Special Education
My husband received his special education credential through National University. Most of the classes he has taken are online. Working as a Special Education Teacher is great for people who are patient and have a great way with special needs kids. Currently, National University offers a Masters of Science in Special Education with an emphasis in the deaf and hard-of-hearing. This degree is geared toward learning about how to teach students who are deaf and hard of hearing so that they can perform to the best of their abilities. When you specialize your degree, it is often easier to get a teaching job too. The best thing about National is that you can focus on one class at a time. The classes are quick and take only a month to complete. If you think you may be interested in a special education degree, go online and complete online course demo.

With all of the trouble with health care, this is a field to go into if you want to help change the system. Going to Kaplan is a good choice because it has interactive seminars and discussion boards.
