American Public University Blog Tour

Posted by Jenna | Tuesday, August 24, 2010



Although I went to college and got my BA several years ago, I often find myself thinking about graduate programs and continuing my education at some point. I don't know if it's my background in education or something lots of moms think about from time to time, but it especially comes to mind this time of year as I walk the isles and see all the 'back to school gear'.

I don't know if I will end up doing it or not, but if I do it would need it to be something flexible and still allowed me to put my family and children first. Probably something online. How about you? Have you ever taken online courses or looked into it?

American Public University is especially valuable for moms who are trying to balance it all. They offer a diverse, online curriculum that makes it easy to participate in more than 100 degree programs tailored to your own schedule. Between their flexibility and some of the lowest tuition rates in the country (undergraduate classes cost $750 per 3-credit course), I have been quite impressed with all they have to offer. Whether a person is looking into undergraduate degrees or graduate programs...they have a little bit of everything and a great opportunity to help people advance their careers.

Flexibility, variety, quality and affordability are all things I would look for in an online university...so I thought APU sounded like a great option and something to consider at some point.

If the thought of taking online classes has every crossed your mind and you'd like to look into APU more, they offer live chats which allow people to speak with other Moms about their experience going back to school at APU. Their next one is:

I wrote this review while participating in a blog campaign by Mom Central on behalf of American Public University. Mom Central sent me a gift card to thank me for taking the time to participate.

    Online training can offer just-in-time access and personalized content but classroom training remains very entertaining, offering a personal interaction with the trainer and networking with other participants.
