If you get a degree mostly or completely online, do potential employers and/or graduate schools take you seriously?
I want to study Psychology/Sociology/Social work...something like that. I know I want to work somewhere doing something to help people...probably a non-profit organization? There is a small possibility that in the future I *may* want to go to law school, in which case I'm worried an online degree would not cut it in order to get me in. More likely, though, I will go to graduate school and study Social Work or Community Organizing or even Special Education. These are all things I've contemplated.
Will an online degree get me into grad school and/or a career in these fields making a livable salary? Schools I am considering: Ashford University, University of Maryland University College, American Military University...still researching this.
