Committing to Education Mid-Career
Linfield’s Online and Continuing Education Program offers adults who are mid-career an opportunity to re-commit to their education and earn an online degree. As one’s priorities, goals and career change, so do the demands for an education. Brian explains how his perspective of college changed from his first experience as an undergrad, and to now as an adult.
“My perspective on college, you know, became a little bit more serious. As an undergrad, I was a little bit younger and I maybe didn’t take my education quite as seriously as I had recently. And when I returned to the adult degree program, I had priorities, I had goals and I was much more serious about my education because I was facing the reality of a career that did not have a lot of opportunity for growth, and I needed to make a switch and I was serious about committing to my education and my career.”
