Enter a college or university, earn a degree, find a job, or start your own business—this is the path that most people expect us to take. But life is not a one-way road and we can take our own twists and turns if we want and need to. Some might have to get a job first before graduating from college. Some might not finish college at all but still, find a way in life. Others might want to go back to studying while fulfilling the duties that their job requires.

Going back to school to pursue a master’s degree has its own pros and cons. Being a master’s degree holder can give you more in-depth knowledge of your chosen field and increase your chances of getting a better and higher-paying job. At the same time, it can also be challenging because it gives additional responsibility for managing your finances and time. 

What if you can actually study your lessons anytime and anywhere without having to sit in the classroom for hours? Well, thanks to the wonders of technology, it is possible to earn your master’s degree through online education! With a stable internet connection and a comfortable place to study, you can just access your lectures online and move at your own pace. This is helpful for those who want to pursue a postgraduate degree while working as employees. whether in the Philippines or abroad. The best part is it requires fewer expenses for transportation and less time needed for traveling to campus! 

Dreaming of being a master’s degree holder? Here are some schools that offer online master’s degree programs in the Philippines:

AMA University Online Education

AMA University Online Education is the first full online education program in the Philippines. Through this program, anyone who wishes to get a postgraduate degree such as employed individuals, working students, OFWs, international students, and people with disabilities can study in the comforts of their home. In this program, learning materials such as supplementary videos, course modules, presentations, and exams can be accessed on their website with just a few clicks. Students can also participate in real-time online classes through the Virtual Classroom. Advance notice is given for these sessions, but in case you can’t attend a real-time session, you can still access the recordings through your account! 

AMAOEd offers the following programs: Master in Business Administration (Non-Thesis), Master of Arts in Computer Education, Master in Business Administration, Master in Public Administration, and Master in Information Technology. Some of these courses take only three semesters with 14 weeks in each semester, while some may take up to six to seven semesters. Once you’ve completed the course, you can now receive your master’s degree diploma and accreditation just like other graduates from AMA University!

Mapúa Digital Academics

Looking to take your engineering knowledge a step higher? Mapúa University welcomes students who aspire to get a master’s degree online through Mapúa Digital Academics. Their master’s degree programs are open to anyone from across the globe and learning materials can be accessed anytime, anywhere. Students can study at their own pace, giving them the freedom to study at a time that doesn’t come in conflict with other commitments. Talk about balancing work, life, and graduate education! Like other traditional programs offered by Mapúa, online programs follow a quarter system, so online students can possibly finish a program in less than two years (six quarters). 

Mapúa Digital Academics offers Master of Engineering programs which culminate in practicum courses. These programs include Computer Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Electronics Engineering, and Industrial Engineering. 

Master of Science programs, on the other hand, culminating in a master’s thesis. These programs include Computer Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Electronics Engineering, and Mechanical Engineering.

Philippine Women’s University Distance Learning Program

To all aspiring teachers who want to further develop their knowledge in the field of education, this is for you. The Philippine Women’s University’s Distance Learning Program offers two master’s degree programs, specifically Master of Arts in Education major in Educational Management and Master of Arts in Education major in Early Childhood Education. After a day’s worth of work, working students need not go to the campus to attend physical classes multiple times a week. Whether it be at home, in a café, or any place that’s convenient for them, getting that master’s degree can be less challenging than usual.

Just take note that the University requires at least three face-to-face sessions for students who live in the Philippines, in compliance with the guidelines given by the Philippine Commission on Higher Education (CHED). Face-to-face sessions for those residing abroad can be arranged on a case-to-case basis.

Polytechnic University of the Philippines Open University System

The Polytechnic University of the Philippines Open University System (PUP OUS) is another option for students who want to pursue a master’s degree outside the traditional classroom setup. Under its Institute for Open and Distance Education, students can choose whether to study independently, with guidance from a teacher or tutor who checks and grades their work or study online through which they can communicate with their teacher and other classmates in an online classroom.

Programs offered by the PUP OUS are Master of Science in Construction Management, Master in Communication, Master in Education Management, Master in Information Technology, and Master in Public Administration.

With the help of these universities that offer online master’s degree programs, it is possible to pursue your dreams without having to worry about time, distance, and other constraints. We hope to see more schools that offer this type of learning set up so a lot more people can expand and develop their knowledge without quitting their job!
