The graduate program at Francis Marion provided me with the opportunity to continue my education while working a full-time job. The classes were small and interactive. I was able to learn in an environment where I knew my professors cared and shared the same success that I wanted for myself.

The M.Ed program in Learning Disabilities helped me become a better teacher after graduating in May 2011. I would highly recommend this program and school to teachers who want to enhance themselves to better serve their students, school, and community!
Anquize PerkinsClass of 2011
It was a dream come true to enter and to complete the graduate program in education at Francis Marion University. Every course that I took was a learning experience and everything I learned built on previous knowledge gained. The classes that I took were practical and useful to a classroom teacher at any stage of his/her teaching career. Additionally, the professors were supportive, caring, and encouraging. Every professor that I encountered was accessible to clarify information, assignments or to walk me through any technological problems that arose. I am very proud to be a graduate of the Francis Marion University Education Graduate Program and highly recommend the program to anyone thinking of furthering their education.
