Of course you can! It is becoming increasingly more popular for individuals who have busy schedules to earn their degree online, this allows them the opportunity to earn a degree, while they balance their work and home lives. Something that is becoming the norm in today's busy society.

With that said, yes, in the beginning when online degrees were a new thing a lot of companies and organizations did not look favorably one them, but that is quickly changing.

Now, this does not mean that this type of degree discrimination is gone, there are still lingering companies and organizations, especially if you are wanting to go onto working within a higher education institutions, that will not hire individuals with online degrees, but that is quickly diminishing.

What is also important to note about online degrees, and their acceptance, is that online degrees that are earned from reputable brick and mortar universities, such as WGU, University of Phoenix, and Boise State University, are really considered to be equals to their on-campus degrees. The degree you get will not say that is is online, it is the same degree as if you had gone to their on-campus program.
