Student Experiences

Photo of Melinda Corey“As a full-time working mother of a young child, this program afforded me the time and flexibility I needed to be successful. These courses challenged me in new ways each week and granted me the skills I needed to become a program manager within my organization a year after completing my degree. I would recommend this program to anyone, but especially to non-traditional students who feel like a master’s degree may be otherwise out of reach.” – Melinda

I am able to take engaging online classes with instructors who know how to create class communities in the virtual environment. I am also able to develop valuable skills that I can apply immediately in my teaching practice.” – Jessica
