Synopsis:

Completing Graduate School Long-Distance is a comprehensive guidebook for earning a graduate degree without ever setting foot on a campus. While long-distance graduate education initially began in the western states as a geographical necessity, it is gaining popularity throughout the country due in large part to significant advances in telecommunication technology. Now, more and more graduate institutions are offering degree programs that students can complete via the Internet, over the telephone, and through the mail. Pursuing an advanced degree long-distance has its own inherent difficulties, and the authors offer valuable advice based on their own personal experience to help students through them. They raise important issues to consider when contemplating earning a degree long-distance, from the many factors that come into play when selecting an appropriate institution to the essentials of obtaining and utilizing necessary resources and technology. The authors also offer tremendous support for students who have already begun long-distance programs. They outline key strategies for time management, selecting graduate committees, developing support groups, and meeting thesis/dissertation and graduation requirements. In addition, they have compiled useful appendixes that include a listserve of graduate schools that offer long-distance programs and the Globewide Network Academy Catalog.
