My graduate experience was amazing! I appreciated the support and guidance from the faculty and staff at Texas Southern University. It was a wonderful experience and program which allowed me to grow both academically and professionally. I was able to get hands on in the field experience during my practicum internship and felt confident to enter the job field and compete as a top professional.
