USM has an excellent distance learning program. They offer a variety of degrees where most, if not all, of the classes are offered strictly in on-line classroom settings. Some programs, such as the MLIS degree, is offered fully online. That means never having to drive to campus! This is an ideal situation for those who have families to provide for, a full-time job, or just can't afford a commute. I love that USM offers such extensive education options in this rushed society we live in.
The sky is the limit when you soar as an eagle!
