I am settled into a wonderful home and town, and my partner and I just had our first baby. I need to be a stay-at-home mom right now, but I also wanted to continue my education and better my skills. An online Master's degree program is the only way I could have made both of those dreams a reality. I could still shop around for schools without the pressure of having to relocate, sell our house, my partner quit his job, etc.— Jennifer, R., MFA in Creative Writing, Bay Path University

I can go about my normal routine with a newborn knowing that, come September, I'll simply replace my reading and computer time (and time during any naps she takes) with classes and writing. School is no longer an unattainable dream, and I'm now realizing the opportunities I'll have once I earn an MFA. I may become a teacher once my daughter starts school, or I could even pursue a PhD. Besides the logistical perks, I'll be able to do my writing and learning and brainstorming from the comfort of my own home office. No more plastic desks or arena seats!— Jennifer, R., MFA in Creative Writing, Bay Path University
