What Our Students Say

  • The preparation I received in the Special Education program was remarkable. The educators were passionate, professional, and incredibly knowledgeable. I was teaching during the day, and attending school at night. I wouldn't have done it any other way. The practical information I was able to learn on a nightly basis directly impacted my experiences in the classroom the next day. I felt supported, challenged, and respected.

    Amy Jo Evje, Special Education Credential ‘17
  • St. Mary’s truly does prepare us as professionals to enter our roles right after completing the program. The Counseling Department supports, listens and advocates for it’s students. The environment allows an individual to make mistakes and then learn from those mistakes. It’s a learning community that values the process.

    Danika Webster, Master of Arts in Counseling ‘20
  • This program helped me understand more about my business as a whole, and helped me foster relationships within the organization ... and is directly responsible for the new (and more lucrative, I might add) opportunity at work. I am proud to be a graduate.
