Why Accelerated Courses Work for Adults


It’s Tuesday afternoon, you’ve worked eight(+) hours, dropped the children off at the sitters, and you’re eating a quick bite before going to school to finish your degree. The last thing you need is to juggle even more than you already are. Sound familiar?

If you’re currently in school or considering going back to school, taking multiple classes at a time can seem like a daunting task. Since SNU designed programs specifically for working adults, we changed the schedule to work for you. Here are some reasons why we love accelerated courses.

Study one subject at a time.

In SNU’s accelerated courses, you only have to worry about one class at a time. That way, you only have to focus on one subject, one homework assignment, before moving on to the next one.

Classes are the same night every week.

One more way SNU has made accelerated courses work for working adults is in the scheduling. Once you enroll, your classes take place on the same night throughout the course of your entire degree. Getting into the routine of classwork will prevent many scheduling headaches.

Accelerated doesn’t mean more difficult.

Don’t let the word “accelerated” scare you. You’ll have seven days between each class period to complete assignments and study. Plus, SNU instructors understand the hectic, busy lives of working adults and keep that in mind when designing the curriculum.

You can still graduate on time.

If you took one course at a time at traditional universities, it would take half a century to complete a degree. Accelerated courses remove that issue. In addition to taking your studies in manageable chunks, you can still complete your degree in a reasonable timeframe.
