I decided tofurther my education and provide myself myriad opportunities for a successful future by earning a Master’s degree. After an analysis of several online universities around the world, I decided to commit my efforts to Atlantic International University (AIU)!
The initial phase of studies was awesome! Nowhere else did a program offer a part of study that included identifying past experiences, professional strengths, and a design that kept you focused on your academic goals. In the first phase, I was able to figure out the details that were crucial to maintaining a level of academics that could not possibly steer me wrong, despite having an unclear mind regarding what I actually wanted to do. Additionally, I was able to complete assignments based on texts that never would have been a part of my degree’s program; this turned me on to new ways of thinking and even a new, favorite author! Then, I was impressed to learn that I would design my own curriculum. As a teacher, this was perfect! I was able to approach learning from a new perspective and, upon completing those courses I designed, realized how truly beneficial a well-rounded and well-designed course can be!
I was impressed with my own ability to remain dedicated to my studies and the initiative I was able to show. Not that this was ever really in question, but it makes earning a higher degree all the sweeter and more-noble. I am gracious to AIU for the opportunity and look forward to putting my new-found knowledge to work!
