“Small class sizes, whether online or in person, made it possible for me to connect with other students and with professors; I had consistent support from the faculty and my colleagues. My professors were also very knowledgeable; they taught from their own experiences in the classroom, their research, and their faith. Eastern had the most affordable and accessible program for me, and I was glad to have a program that allowed me to both work in the field part time and attend school full time.”

Amy Ballard, MEd '16
