I am trying to find an online school to get a masters in marriage and family therapy. I am told Kansas does not recognize distance learning schools. Where can I get information on any online programs that might work for me?
It is true, some states, business, and organizations do not always look kindly upon online degree, and have in the past shied away from hiring individuals who have an online education. But, this is changing quickly. As the standards and quality of online colleges and universities continue to rise, so do the number of institutions who are hiring their graduates.
As for the State of Kansas, I was unable to verify whether or not they would license someone with an online degree, but was able to find a website that would lead you in the right direction. The Kansas State Behavioral Science Regulatory Board.
What I would suggest if that you check out this website, and get in touch them to determine if an online education is acceptable option.
Also, here is a link to a list of online education articles that might be of some use.
