One of the factors that drew me to USF’s program is the ability to remain in the classroom while completing my doctorate. I chose USF because I was looking for a program that would provide me the opportunity to strengthen my research skills and methodology background, to collaborate with colleagues from various contexts, and to actively investigate the possibilities for increasing literacy through technology."
