Ashworth College started in 1987 with a distance education course in real estate appraisal. The success of that course demonstrated the need and market for distance education; and they focused on career-focused programs. Virtual programs were added in 1996 and today the school offers a wide range of programs from high school diploma to graduate degrees fully online. The website offers a wealth of information gathered from the school’s lengthy history and experience in distance learning. Online bachelor’s degrees available include business administration and related fields, criminal justice, education, general studies, healthcare fields, nursing (RN-BSN) and psychology. Master’s degrees are offered online in criminal justice, healthcare fields, human resource management and MBA including concentrations. As expected, student support and online resources is expansive and easily accessed.
