At-Home Mothers: Get Career-Ready!

Dec 8, 2011 by University Communications

Be the World’s Best Mom while preparing for the next phase of your life. One hundred percent-online programs in business, psychology, and law make it possible for moms to ready themselves for rewarding careers while tending to children and family.

Being a mother is one of the most important and rewarding jobs a woman can undertake. As a mother of two wonderful young adults, I speak from my experience when I say it is now possible to take care of a young family and, at the same time, prepare for your own career.

The formative at-home years are critical to your child’s development and future. This requires your full attention and commitment. But, as your child grows and develops, they will transition from dependent infants to primary-school attendees and then to adolescents. And all too suddenly, they’ll be young adults embarking upon their own lives.

While you role as mother never diminishes, it does evolve. Eventually, you will face the “empty nest” and a number of weighty questions: What do I now do for myself? How do I prepare for the next phase in my own life? How can I enter the outside—and perhaps intimidating—world of satisfying work now that my children are on their own?

While these are difficult questions, today there’s a ready answer. Even better, you can address these issues regarding your life’s next phase while you’re still committed to being a mother, by preparing to enter or re-enter the working world before your children leave home for school or a career. You can acquire the skills, the knowledge, and the academic degrees you will need two, five, or even 10 years from now.

Get ready now while your children are growing up. These years are a gift to you, a gift of time that you should use to prepare yourself for your own career. You can take a giant step toward that goal while at home, whenever you can carve out some free time: earn your college degree at home in a career field that interests you.

You can prepare for your career in business, psychology, or law while being the best mother on the planet, earning an accredited bachelor’s, master’s or even a doctoral degree from the comfort of your home. Let CalSouthern show you how we bring quality, cutting-edge higher education into your home through our innovative, proprietary online learning platform.

Everyone has heard about the revolution in higher education called “distance learning” or “online education.” Through innovation and foresight, we have been educating adults at home since 1978, when our university was founded. With more than 33 years of experience in adult distance education, we’ve continuously refined our online education methodology and can offer you the opportunity to achieve your full potential and excel in whatever area you chose.

We offer dozens of areas of concentration to enhance our degree programs in business and psychology, in addition to two degree programs in the study of law. Ours is a self-paced model with monthly course starts; you can proceed through your courses and degree program as quickly or as slowly as your busy life allows. You’ll enjoy individualized attention from our faculty mentors, who are leading practitioners in their fields as well as superb educators. A convenient, interest-free payment option allows you to graduate with little or no debt. And once you enroll, you’ll join our online community of thousands of learners, graduates, faculty, and professionals from around the world, who are there to support you as your progress toward your degree.

All of this is available from the comfort of your home computer and on your own schedule. You can prepare yourself for a rewarding career without compromising your family obligations. You can have it all—at CalSouthern.
