3. You don’t have to choose a local college or University
Because Utica College offers the cyber program online, I was able to choose one of the best colleges for my degree. I currently live in Hawaii, and though it has a wonderful university, they don't currently offer a cyber program of any sort. That means without Utica or online courses; I wouldn't have been able to major in the degree I want and eventually get the job I want.
4. You can take your classes whenever you want
As I am currently writing this blog at midnight, you can see the appeal of taking your classes whenever and wherever you want (as long as you have an internet connection, of course). For example, you can work a nine to five job and still complete a degree because you can take your tests and read materials without leaving your job. There is no ‘set time’ to do your work; just complete it by the due date required by the professor.
5. The professors online are just as good the professors on campus
One of the main misnomers of taking online courses is that the professors aren’t as good as those on the main campus. I’ve found that this is not the case—in fact, every professor so far has been as wonderful as those who mainly teach on campus. They will help you and talk to you just like a professor on campus would, you can even contact them at various times throughout the day!
Though I may never know what hair color they put on bald people’s driver’s license, I hope, my list of favorite things about the cybersecurity bachelors program can help you decide if the program is right for you—just as they’re helping me to move forward with my degree.
