5 Reasons BEAU Is Great for Adult Learners

There are lots of reasons why adult students attend college after working for many years. Maybe you’re looking to start a new career, earn a bachelor of fine arts (BFA ) degree after having earned an associate degree in the past, or are interested in starting college for the first time. At BEAU, we understand all of these diverse paths and the unique challenges that adult learners face when returning to school.

No matter what path you’ve taken up until now, BEAU is the ideal place to pursue an education that can transform into a creative career. Here are just five reasons why BEAU is a particularly great place to be an adult learner:


  1. We pride ourselves on the diversity of our student body: BEAU is a small school, but it’s big on diversity in lots of ways, from the cultural backgrounds of our students to their ages and life experiences. We believe that all of this diversity adds to the quality of our education. Every adult learner brings something unique to the classroom because of their life experiences, and we think that’s something to utilize and celebrate.


  1. We equip students for real-world careers: As an adult learner with prior work experience, you probably have a very clear idea what goals you’re hoping to achieve through your education. BEAU’s programs are carefully designed to equip students with the skills they need to succeed in particular fields. Whether you’re looking to enter a new field or advance in your current career, BEAU’s degree programs will help you achieve these goals efficiently.


  1. We know you have a life: Being an adult learner means that you have responsibilities outside of the classroom to contend with, and at BEAU we understand that you can’t put the rest of your life on hold to pursue a degree. Many classes at BEAU are conveniently scheduled in the afternoon and evening, so that you can pursue your degree while balancing all the other responsibilities and demands you have to worry about.


  1. Prior experience counts: We know education doesn’t always happen inside a classroom, and for those students who have taken college courses in the past, we understand how hard you worked for those credits! BEAU offers college transfer credit, as well as credit for real-world experience and military training. Read more at our website.


  1. BEAU Stays With You: Whether you’re embarking on a second career or seeking to advance in a career you already love, navigating the waters of the working world can be a challenge. That’s why BEAU offers career assistance both while you’re a student and after you’ve graduated. We’re here to watch you succeed, and help you every step of the way.


If these reasons appeal to you as an adult learner, then BEAU might be just the place for you. You can read more about being an adult learner at BEAU on our website. Contact us today for more information about our programs and to start the application process.
