The college challenge presents itself in many ways to individuals and families who want to get the best education but also have to think about how to pay for tuition and what kind of careers are available. One question always looms over students: is this the right major? YourDegree.com has always been a site dedicated to students and prospective students who want to research degree programs, find top priority colleges and learn exactly what’s possible with different degrees. With a new homepage, daily updated blog, and detailed articles, the creators behind YourDegree.com hope that students find knowledge to pursue every interest and define a collegiate path that travels to a promising future. So what is YourDegree.com offering on its new homepage and how can it help students?
There has been a great push from some governors and lawmakers who want to promote education in certain fields, such as Rick Scott, governor of Florida, who has created programs specifically for degrees in STEM fields or science, technology, engineering and math. The thought is that these degrees lead to better jobs. However, that leaves out an entire group of students who want to pursue things like anthropology, fine arts, psychology and even law school. YourDegree.com wants every degree type, whether left or right brain, to be represented and well-researched. While some degree fields like STEM seem to have a better promise, nothing is guaranteed, and some of the most successful people on the planet studied things like sociology and music production. As the new generation can prove, anything can be worthwhile with the right motivation and dedication to the field.
In addition, YourDegree.com wants all collegiate paths to be represented. There’s more than one way to get an education, and some ways do end up costing less. Whether you start out at a smaller community college or you pick an online college that allows you to work and take care of home, these are often less represented on college information sites simply because it’s not the “traditional” path. The benefits of going to a four-year university are not lost either, as bachelor and master degree programs on YourDegree.com reveal the best ways to get a degree and start working on a career even while still in school.
With Version 3.0, YourDegree.com developers want to show off all of this information but keep it fresh and clean. With a degree search tool and links to over a hundred different degree types, students can find out exactly what they need to know about degree programs and even receive recommendations for different schools that specifically relate to their chosen degree. In the past, YourDegree.com had much of these same features, but the delivery was overwhelming. Now, with better organization and a stylish new look, visitors can find new information about exciting degrees and check out the blog for more college tips, such as financial aid, degree planning, online learning and more.
