Philip’s Story

Photo of the Gibson Family“Graduate school can definitely be challenging at times, as can raising two young children. With the online option for the Master’s in Social Work program, I am able to take my classes when and where I want, while being there for my wife and children. It has given me the freedom I have needed in the program I am interested in. Hopefully in the future, more online programs will be available for families and non-traditional students, so that UMaine can help every individual achieve their academic goals. Thank you for this great opportunity.”
