MS in Ed 2016
The MS Education program has been unbelievable for allowing me to follow my dream. One of my favorite things about the program is the professors. They are all teachers or administrators and they work in the field, hands-on, so they have realistic advice that I can really benefit from in the future.

MS in Ed 2018
At Dominican University, we do student teaching and that’s when I really got to understand that I do have a gift with children.
The College is very close to New York City, so it gives a lot of grad students an opportunity to be in some of the best medical and research hospitals in the world. Because it’s a weekend program, every single one of the faculty is practicing full time.
