My Master's program is predominately online. Being married, with two kids and a job, it is a perfect fit for my current lifestyle.

Not all the coursework is fully applicable to what I will be doing. However, I think this would be the case for my program at most schools.
I have been with BVU from my undergraduate degrees and now will be beginning my masters degrees. The people are helpful and most teachers enjoy their work.
