Many learners enter studies not intending to obtain a new degree, but rather to enhance personal and professional knowledge. You may want to advance in your present career, acquire the background to make a career change, or make up academic deficiencies before entering a degree program. Other learners may need to earn professional development credits for satisfying district or state requirements.
