I am an online MPA student close to finishing my first year at Anna Maria. I love everything about my Anna Maria experience. Anna Maria makes learning at the graduate level challenging but very enjoyable. Outside of school I am a big sports fan, movie watcher, and "foodie"!
There are many reasons someone pursues a master’s degree. I am willing to bet however that ninety five percent of the time it’s to pursue a specific career or advance within an organization.
Getting into a graduate program that fits your style and personality can be a long and stressful journey. Sometimes it only takes the first week of classes to realize you made the right choice. That is exactly what happened for me at Anna Maria. I knew almost instantly I chose the right school.
When searching for an online graduate program, several factors crossed my mind. Is it a “real” school; do they have a real campus with sports teams and dorms and academic buildings etc.? Do they have a real interest in academics or are they just a for profit money maker?
