A graduate from SHU’s Graduate College testified to the value of a master’s degree: “The degree itself and the experience in school had given me a boost in being able to do things. It allowed me to know that I was able to accomplish things that I never thought I would be able to accomplish… It gave me a sense of pride knowing that I was able to get that quality and level of education.”
