Is an Online Education Right for Me?

If we learned anything from the pandemic, it’s that almost anything can be done online – including education! Unfortunately, many colleges & universities struggled in delivering their courses online[1]. At American National University, our students didn’t miss a beat. As one of the first universities to offer programs such as pharmacy technician, medical assisting, and an ABA-approved paralegal programs via distance education, we are well versed in online education.

Here’s what you should look for in online education.

Accreditation.  American National University’s distance education programs are accredited by the Distance Education Accrediting Commission.  If you’re considering other distance education programs, how are they accredited?

Delivery.  Another question you should ask yourself is “How will I complete my assignments?” We at ANU offer much more than simply an “online degree,” but a High-Tech / High-TouchTM education. We bring the university to you through ZOOM conferencing, at-home lab kits, virtual simulations, discussion boards and more.

Student Experience.  What do real students and graduates say about the program?

“It’s very cut and dry… eBooks are easy to navigate.”- Regina Goodman

“Canvas is a really good set up that lays everything out real well, so it is easy to keep up with.” – Kala Day

“When I was [working on] my bachelor’s degree, I had a baby, so… it was easier for me to do my online classes while taking care of my child” – Fatou Souare
