Jeremy Barden

"I chose to study at WKU because it is the only school which offers a graduate certificate in International Student Services. This certificate is only available online. I did not necessarily need the extra flexibility that studying online gives, but the flexibility does allow me to work and volunteer. The thing I enjoy most about studying online is the ability to set my own hours to study. For those considering studying online, they should first ask themselves, "Do I have the ability to organize my time well to keep up on my assignments?" Maintaining your grades is the most essential thing." 

Katharine Quince

"I have wanted a graduate degree in Women's Studies for over a decade, but there isn't one offered where I live in Portland, Oregon. I was so excited to find the certificate offered online at WKU and to find that it was compatible with an MA program focused on social justice. The classes in both programs feel like they were tailor made to fit my interests and goals. Enrolling at WKU has been one of the best decisions I've ever made!"
