I’m earning my BA in Creative Writing at The New School, a private research university in New York City. But I live in California.
Before I enrolled at The New School, I had some experience with online classes. I completed an online Certificate in Fashion Industry Essentials through Parson’s in 2017 and I have been working towards earning a Certificate in Children’s Book Writing through UC San Diego which blends online and in-class learning since 2018 .
I know that when I was in high school, I wished for alternatives to traditional school. However, earning a degree online was never discussed as an option.
If you’re curious about what it means to be an online student, then keep reading. I will walk you through the pros and cons of online learning and what an average week as an online student is like.
