            Best Master of Liberal Arts College

            In addition to the glorious grounds and gardens at St. Edwards University, they have developed a Masters program for those who have varied interests in the study of the human experience and search for meaning. This embodies a long list of areas of study that foster skills that can easily enhance undergraduate degrees and translate to any profession. "...deep appreciation of and strong dedication to ethical and civic responsibilities, artistic sensibilities, spiritual possibilities and intellectual achievements." This program is important to find for those who have a general idea of where they want to take their education but are unsure. That is where my issue was until I found the MLA program at St. Ed's. I have a BA in Sociology and wanted to be involved in social services and nonprofits, but not necessarily set my sights on a Masters in Social Work, which can be limiting. With this degree, my options are wider and more fulfilling to my personal needs. I would highly recommend this program. I've actually been asked twice by the school to promote the program at recruiting events...that's how much I love it!

            I've made many beautiful memories at this school and the education I've received has defined who I am. I would recommend this school for undergraduate studies to anyone who wishes to pursue photography or is interested in English/Literature/Creative Writing.
