I would recommend Utah Valley University's Masters of Education program to any teachers that are looking for chances to learn new skills that will help them be successful in the classroom.”

“The M.Ed. program offered at Utah Valley University provided me with the opportunity to expand my horizons. Perhaps the most enlightening part of the program was that of the final project…Not only was I able to obtain viable data about the subject I wanted to discover more about, but in the end it felt that I had created a published work that will be forever meaningful. The hope is that it will provide additional data to others who may have a similar question to the one I chose to focus on and study.

“I also formed some lifelong friendships with the cohort I was a part of, and I greatly respected the professors who mentored and helped me through the program. It wasn't easy, but it was worth the effort and hard work that was required.”
