I was browsing around in search of MAs in technical writing and noticed
quite a few offered on-line.
I'm wondering how on-line degrees are received in the business world. Are
they smiled upon, frowned upon, indifferent in comparison to "face-to-face"
I'd assume that face-to-face degrees will always be preferred, but with more
and more universities offering courses on-line, I wondered if the attitude
toward an "on-your-own" degree wouldn't become favorable the more common
Does anyone have any experience in this arena that can offer insight?
