Program Director Q&A with Tyoto D. Wardlow, MS

  What do you believe is the most valuable element of your program? The most valuable element in our program is the instructors. Our professors are experts in their field and continue their learning journey daily. As a staff, we care about our students and understand life has its ups and downs. We are always willing to work with students as situations arise. Our program is completely online and classes are taken one at a time and are five weeks long. This is a huge benefit for working adults as it cuts down on the amount of time it takes to complete their degree and keeps learners engaged and eager to finish the program.  The cohort model allows students to complete the program with a built-in support network, this is especially important in online learning and helps our students transition from the classroom into their profession with a network of professional contacts.
