For educators looking for balance in a graduate program, Wilson’s M.Ed. program gave me the flexibility I needed to be successful as a teacher, a parent and a student. While the program was rigorous, I never felt unsupported by faculty.
Kyle Dingle, Master of Education
I’m very appreciative that I have the opportunity to improve my role as an educator through the ongoing education classes and the Wilson graduate program. The courses are extremely beneficial and I know that I would not be the teacher I am today without them. The ease of taking the classes at my school district with members of our administration and a great range of fellow faculty helped make the process a smooth one.
