Degree: English
Graduation Year: 2013
"Before signing up with WGU, I looked online for reputable online programs. Many universities were offering MBA-type programs, but not many public or private schools were offering education degrees. Most seemed like degree mills that mostly wanted my money. I had no trouble buying into WGU's philosophy; demonstrate competence, work at my own pace, become an expert in my field, and graduate with a real degree that will help my career. I had an excellent mentor (Anita!) and almost a year later, I still look back at my experience with WGU with fondness. It was hard work, but I had a lot of online support, lots of clear instructions, and plenty to do to sharpen my skills. Meanwhile, I've been promoted, had my degree recognized by schools (as it is regionally accredited and National Board certified) and even turned my master's thesis into a published academic article. If you're interested in WGU for the education department, I can say that I am very impressed with the learning I was able to do for the price. I'm currently enrolled in a different M.Ed. program but I'm not as happy with it - even though my current school is more recognized. Go figure :) Good luck and trust in WGU. I'm currently"
