            An education from MSUD does not compromise.

            tIf I were to do it over, I would go back to MSUD in a heartbeat. My time at MSUD certainly helped build the skills and foundation I needed to find success in today’s very competitive environment.

            Equips You for Success Beyond the Classroom

            When I attended Metro, the criminalistics track required two semesters of internship in a forensic laboratory. The school had fostered relationships with many labs in the area, including the private biological testing lab that accepted me. This experience gave me the opportunity to acquire skills and connections that I couldn't obtain through classroom learning alone. These skills were later used extensively throughout my doctoral training. I am indebted to Metro for providing these options!
