“I made the decision to enroll with GCU because I knew it would fit into my schedule. As a busy professional, I needed a program that fit my needs and not the other way around.”
– Rick Carson, MSL ‘08
“I’m currently working on my Doctorate in Educational Leadership at GCU and found the online program very rewarding right from the start. I currently work at a medical university and teach faculty doctors how to use computer technology and software to put their curriculum together. My success in this area is directly related to my education and experience at GCU. I can take classes around my work schedule instead of the other way around. I can also contact my instructors any time I want; it’s a whole lot easier than tracking them down on campus or waiting for a scheduled class. The Christian principles of GCU also reinforce the values that I grew up with and have helped to make my experience earning my doctorate online at GCU much more rewarding than traditional college courses.”
