I'm a possible career changer in need of some advice. After being in manufacturing for 20 years as a machinist and in supervision, I found myself unable to move up the ladder without a degree. I was told quite frankly that I shouldn't expect to move up any further unless I pursue an education. After a great deal of research, I enrolled at CTU online, and I am currently working on an Associates in Business Administration. I hated the idea of going back to school. As an Associate Pastor at 40 years old with a full time job and a family, it seemed like an insane idea. However, I was surprised to find that I'm actually enjoying it. I've decided that I won't stop at an Associates degree. My company reimburses, so I have finally, after all these years, come to realize that it is an opportunity I must take advantage of. I've always been intersted in psychology. It goes well with my secondary profession of being a minister. Now for my question. Don't crucify me over this. I've read other threads on the topic I'm about to bring up. I know that it's not considered a good idea to get a Masters degree online, but what about getting a BA online? I am considering Liberty University, which is the number three online school. It is not APA accredited. I would then transfer to John Brown University to complete my Masters degree at night. I'm open to suggestions.
