The ability of our students to balance fulltime work, in most cases, a family life, and the rigors of completing a degree is greatly due to the flexible nature of our online programs. Students stay in and finish their programs because of our scholar-practitioner faculty who bring the experiences of their discipline into the classroom. Their emphasis is on teaching, not mentoring or coaching. They help students find practical applications of concepts and theories. What students learn in the classroom they use in their jobs.”
