You will find that our programs are nationally accredited and nationally recognized, innovatively designed, and taught by a diverse group of expert faculty and former award-winning practitioners. Our faculty continuously aim to bridge the gap between theory and practice, in an effort to make the content within each course more meaningful for our students.

Our alum serve in a variety of leadership roles locally, across the state, throughout the region, nationally, and internationally. Upon reviewing our departmental webpages, if you should have any additional questions or concerns, or would simply like to discuss our programs more in-depth, please do not hesitate to contact me directly or complete this inquiry form and we will contact you.
