Why did you choose the SPEA Connect MPA program?


The SPEA Connect MPA program offers me the opportunity to get my graduate degree while still having a very busy professional and personal life. The program is highly regarded in the Public Affairs arena and offers great instruction. The Veteran Services Office was also extremely helpful in getting all of the required VA benefits coordinated. The experiential credit and constructive credit for attending Command and General Staff College is great!


How has the flexibility of the online program helped you to balance all of your responsibilities?


The flexibility of the SPEA Connect program gives me the opportunity to handle a busy professional schedule, spend time with family, and set my own agenda for completing course work on my time. Having asynchronous instruction allows me to be six time zones away and still be able to actively participate.
