MA, Communication, UW-Milwaukee 2010

“I was working full-time in my professional field while attending UW-Milwaukee for my MA. I enjoyed tailoring my research to topics that were applicable to my profession. The flexibility of coursework selection was appreciated as I enrolled in a few classes through the Lubar School of Business that were topically of interest to me and complimented my communication coursework. Additionally, I completed the program in two and a half years, which was far less than many of my colleagues who were working full-time and enrolled in graduate programs elsewhere. The faculty in the communication department were supportive of me as a full-time professional and helped me achieve academic goals that were relevant to my professional career.”
