Student Story

Eli Klusek

"Learning with the same group of peers for the past three years has been incredible to say the least. Not only have we been learning the foundations that encapsulate the English Education major, but we are experiencing the joys of teaching together. Stepping into a new program like the BA/MA is going to be a learning experience for everyone involved, but there is a level of comfortability at play because we are all familiar with one another. This is a new and exciting experience for all of us."

Student story

Alex Moore

"The chance to work towards my masters at SUNY Fredonia with the same professors and colleagues I have developed a strong relationship with is a great opportunity. Completing my master's in 5 years also saves time and money, allowing me to enter the workforce earlier with more confidence. The multi-award program offers a variety of beneficial courses that will make me a stronger teacher, such as technology in the classroom, teaching writing and reading, literary study, and a chance to be in a classroom each year.”
