"The BGS degree program allowed me to take classes online and through distance learning to accommodate my work, school and family schedule. It also gave me the flexibility to take a mixture of classes better suited to the direction I wanted to head in my career. This kind of flexibility along with incredibly helpful staff members enabled me to move more easily into a graduate program to continue my education and further my career aspirations. I am grateful to have been a part of this particular program and I would recommend it to any type of returning college student."
