An accelerated Master's Degree

I am excited to be able to spend more of my academic experience at Fredonia. I have grown as a student and future teacher in the BA program, so I’m looking forward to pursuing both my BA and MA at Fredonia. This department is phenomenal. I will continue to learn from professors who have been with me throughout the program. They know us as students--our goals, learning styles, personalities, and that relationship will continue to develop. In this program, I’m working at being the best teacher I can be.
