            Duquesne has given me the skills to be successful in my educational career.

          • Testimony
            2005-2007, Bachelor's

            I completed the Humane Leadership program in 2007. It was the best education I've had since I turned 18. The professors were very knowledgable and experienced, and I enjoyed getting to know my classmates. I took the program entirely online and then flew up for graduation. I am still using many of the tools I learned during the program.
