EMBA Program Graduation and Hooding - December 2008
Read what people are saying about The Graduate School.
"The research I have performed for Dr. Tom Buggey at Siskin Children’s Institute has given me opportunities for presenting and writing that may open the door to future professional research possibilities. Also, through research, I have had hands-on experience with the concepts I have learned in my UTC education classes. I now have a base of understanding in research processes and terminology that provides a good foundation for future educational and research positions."
"During the time that I was a graduate student at UTC, I also worked full time as a high school science teacher. My professors understood the demands of my job and worked to help me reach my full potential in my counseling studies. I was able to take the position as Early College Director at Northwestern Technical College in Rock Spring, Georgia… I hope to return to UTC to begin studying in the Ed.D. program, working towards becoming a vice president of a college. Without my graduate student experience at UTC I would not be working in my dream job today, and I would not have the career goals I now have set for myself."
--Brooke Mobley, Early College Director, Northwestern Technical College
"I considered my two years in the Master's program the best two years of my life. I was instantly welcomed by virtually everyone I met—faculty, staff, and students. During those years, I grew up mentally and emotionally; developed wonderful relationships—both professionally and personally; and learned more than I ever could have imagined. I’m now a freshman composition lecturer at UTC, and I love my job."
--Tiffany N. Mitchell
"Not only were the classes in my MA program in English interesting, challenging, and informational, the professors were amazing. The English department’s faculty members are some of the most helpful professors and mentors I have encountered in my academic career. In the classroom they are both dynamic and intellectual, and out of the classroom they are helpful and willing to encourage and support any academic endeavors a student has."
"I have found that what I learned about rhetoric and composition at UTC has provided me with an excellent foundation for my ongoing research in rhetoric and new media."
"Professors in the MPA program were supportive and flexible throughout my studies at UTC, which allowed me to work full-time in a non-profit organization while I attended evening classes full-time. The final thesis I completed to graduate is what pushed my resume over the top of other candidates and allowed me to land a position in the career of my dreams--helping to develop best practices across the nation to assist runaway and homeless youth."
“Not only was my presentation noticed and commended by many in my field of mesh generation, but companies took notice of the work my professor and I had undertaken. I was able to make business connections that will aid both my personal future in the job market and UTC in obtaining grants and accolades for the great work being undertaken by all of us here.”
