  • The EDP grad program was the most immersive learning experience I have ever had. I was challenged and exposed to many theories and ideas of thinking. I was able to apply my learning in helpful ways to real life phenomenons in the fields of psychology and education and I was able to see the impact of what I was learning and why it mattered. The faculty in the EDP department helped create this immersive learning environment even in the midst of the beginning of the pandemic. I always felt supported and always felt that my academic achievement and learning was what was valued most by the faculty. My academic and professional careers benefited greatly from the EDP program.
