Rachel’s Story

photo of Rachel Buck“I chose the Online Hybrid MSW program because, as a full-time wife, mother, and alternative ed teacher, I need the flexibility of working on assignments when my schedule allows. I also knew I wanted the face-to-face contact the two Saturdays per semester offered. Because we’re a cohort, we’ve gotten to know each other personally and look forward to connecting both in online discussions and in person. As with any graduate program, we’ve formed study groups, met each other’s family, and developed relationships that will last far beyond graduation. And, because this is a University of Maine degree, we are getting a top notch education. I am so thankful the Online Hybrid MSW program exists so I can pursue my career goals without needing to put my life on hold while I go to graduate school.”
