Welcome to Degree.net: the web’s number one resource for information on distance learning, provided by John Bear, Ph.D., author of the long-time best-selling Bears’ Guide to Earning Degrees Nontraditionally.
Distance learning is a booming field: More and more schools are making it possible for people to get the degree they want or need without ever setting foot on a college campus. It can also be a baffling field, fraught with misinformation, false expectations, complexities such as accreditation, and outright dangers such as diploma mills.
Degree.net is here to help make distance learning less baffling and more booming. We’re here to demystify accreditation, identify diploma mills, report on the latest developments in the industry, and, most importantly, help distance learners and good distance learning schools to find each other.
