Success Stories

Pursuing a master’s with the AECT department felt natural and was the perfect fit, especially with a degree emphasis on communications. I believe that you never quit learning, never quit growing. I found the online program to be the perfect opportunity for me to continue my education while continuing to work full time."

I hope to use what I’ve learned in the new program to assist other rural Arkansans by providing scholarships to assist them in their journey at the U of A in the future."

I love the flexibility. I love the ability to start and stop lectures when I’m taking notes. That’s not something you can do in the classroom."
