Interested in taking the next step in your education? If you’ve spent any time researching your graduate degree options at Rasmussen University, you’ve likely accumulated at least a few questions about how our affordable Master’s degree offerings work.
To help address those questions, Rasmussen University recently hosted a webinar session titled “The Making of a $10K Master’s Degree – How to Earn a Quality Master’s for Less” that provides a structured overview of what went into developing our suite of Master’s degree programs, what students can expect in the learning experience and more.

In this article, we’ll highlight key moments from the webinar and our academic experts’ responses to the important questions prospective graduate students posed.

2. What is competency-based education and how is it different from other formats?
At Rasmussen University, competency-based education (CBE) courses are a big part of our Empowered Learning™ approach. While there’s certainly a lot to like about this course format, it’s understandable if you’re not quite sure what competency-based education is or what the practical differences may be for you as a student. To help clarify, our team provides an excellent primer on what you can expect.

3. What kind of interaction can students expect in a CBE format?
Another topic at the top of students’ minds is the human element of their educational experience. Students at all levels need a strong network of instructors and support staff to be successful, and that’s certainly available in our Master’s degree programs. In this clip, Dr. Evans and Dr. Henrich provide some insight into how live classroom sessions with your instructors and other students work and also detail some of the key support offerings you’ll have throughout your experience.
