Which college degrees give you the best chances of finding employment after graduation? Majoring in business, healthcare, or engineering, for example, can give you an advantage in job recruiting in fields that demand analytical and creative skills, such as teaching at the university level. You may find additional links and articles concerning publications on the student services website. Please use the form above to contact Governors State for an application, or simply to request more information.

It isn't necessary to be enrolled in a degree program in order to sign up for online courses. Distance education someday may replace high-priced course textbooks, as many books are now published digitally either on Kindle or in Google Books. If you so choose, online education gives you the opportunity to take difficult courses that won't show up on your transcript. Alternatively, you may be able to complete online credits for a grade. Advanced Placement exams (AP Exams) are offered in a variety of subjects, offering college credit for classes that you've taken. Test yourself with free practice exams, before visiting the official College Board website to register. If you earn a score of 3 or higher on an AP subject exam, you may be granted advanced placement in college.

Graduates with either a bachelors or associates degree typically earn 60% more than employees holding only a high school diploma, adding up to a $750,000 differential in lifetime earnings. If you remain true to your career path and don't wander from job to job, your overall earnings will increase as you gain experience. However, if your focus is more on salary alone, there's a higher risk that you'll encounter early signs of burnout, and be forced to switch careers later on. Technical education programs are a low-cost alternative to attending a regular four-year university, and you can earn good money as a highly-skilled, technical specialist. It's possible to take some of your required courses online, thereby graduating up to a full semester early. Massive Open Online Courses are known as MOOCs, utilizing cloud-based software, interactive platforms such as Blackboard, and mobile apps.

In the future, an online degree may be just as marketable as a college degree that is earned on campus. A new startup with backing from the founders of Groupon, Udemy online learning platform offers both free and paid courses. Similarly, Khan Academy offers over 4,000 free micro-lectures served through YouTube. Finally, there's Coursera, a competing software platform, with millions of enrolled students from around the world. Recently, a joint venture between Harvard University and MIT announced that their platform (EdX) will be available to students and instructors as open-source software.
