Hi Kristin,

The important consideration is not whether the degree is obtained through an
online or on-campus program, but whether the program is fully accredited.

For example, I am taking the online Masters in Technical Communication program
at Utah State University. My employer fully recognizes the value of this degree,
as it is a fully accredited program at a well regarded university.
