Description

There has been tremendous growth in the number of college and university degree programs designed specifically for adults who have family and career responsibilities. Telecommunications and computer technologies have even made it possible to earn some degrees without ever leaving home or work. Other adult degree programs require that students spend only a minimal amount of time on campus. As an added advantage, many of these external degree programs offer college credit for prior learning and work experience. Unfortunately, this revolution in adult higher education has also led to a proliferation of diploma mills--degree-granting institutions that lack recognized accreditation. External Degrees in the Information Age is a reliable and comprehensive guide designed to help adults make informed decisions about pursuing a postsecondary degree, and to help them avoid diploma mills. The book also describes 140 legitimately accredited external degree programs now in operation.
