WHY DID YOU CHOOSE USF?

Being in the heart of the city, the community and network goes beyond SF. I completed my undergraduate degree at USF and knew I wanted to continue my education here as well. I can't imagine going anywhere else - I've left my heart at [University of] San Francisco.

WHAT HAS BEEN THE HIGHLIGHT OF YOUR PROGRAM THUS FAR?

I love how just within the first few weeks of beginning the program I have been able to apply everything I am learning in the classroom to my "real life." The different theories and projects have been beneficial in the workplace in regards to how I communicate and present information to my colleagues..

WHAT ADVICE FOR PROSPECTIVE STUDENTS?

This program is unique in that it offers a complimentary pair of courses every two years (with the exception of summer). These courses are great because they are also offered online, though I advise to plan accordingly should you decide to take a break one semester. The instructors are extremely resourceful and welcoming - ask all the questions you can!
