“The type of education you get here is paramount to further life success: You’re in small classes which challenge you to really think. The combination of the two degrees provided us an incredible learning experience. We are receiving an excellent education, driven by small class sizes, dedicated professors, and a progressive curriculum. My life has changed as the result of my choice to come here.”

“The faculty promote a forum style of discussion in class. That really attracted me. In the past, my educational experiences have been that teaching has been one-way. The discussion format is what these classes are all about: you study, then come into class and articulate your ideas. That was a huge turning point for me – it helped me have a forum to express myself that I didn’t before. Everyone is given a voice.”

“I find myself in a cutting-edge program that is teaching society about the repercussions and responsibilities that we must hold to preserve our future. It (the degree) has opened up a lot of doors for me, not only in the business sector but also just being a professional within my community. You’re able to just flourish and be who you want to be in that program.”
