Online Social Services Degree Programs

If you're looking for an online degree that means more than just a paycheck, check out social science degree programs offered at online universities. The social science field encompasses a variety of in-demand professions that let you do what you do best. And the job outlook for these professions is encouraging. The US Bureau of Labor Statistics reports that overall employment of social scientists is projected to increase by 10 percent through 2016; that's about as fast as the average for all occupations over the coming decade. With respect to convenience and value, the distance education model may be perfect for mid-career changers and other nontraditional students.

Coursework in social science consists of a liberal arts base combined with specific training in the field of your choice. Look for courses in communications, counseling, human growth and development, and human resources. Salaries vary with positions. For example, according to PayScale, starting salaries for new graduates sit at $28,926.
