Testimonials From Students & Alumni

I chose PAU because it allows me the flexibility to take classes from home but at the same time it’s designed as a cohort model where I can share space with my same cohort throughout the program,” she said. “This would allow me to still build relationships with peers, which, as a people person, is very important! Also, as an academic at heart, I was impressed with the caliber of research being done at PAU by its faculty.

- Vanessa Diaz | Student in the MA in Counseling program
