A strong and engaging all online programs exists in Bridgeport’s M.A. in Global Development and Peace. I started my online graduate studies in Sao Paulo, Brazil and finished in Washington, D.C.  I highly recommend this Master’s program. Classes are challenging and professors are committed to provide students with the tools they need to succeed in their future careers. Even though I was far from campus, I always felt part of the Bridgeport family and received all the support I needed.

What I liked best about the program was how it stretched me beyond where I thought I could go academically. My classes were challenging and they made me really think of solutions I would not of thought of before which facilitated a better learning experience for me. I loved the learning. I would highly and proudly recommend the University of Bridgeport’s MBA program. They understand what it takes to support the adult student who is a seasoned professional.

My favorite part of UB’s online MBA program was the 8 week courses. The 8 week courses allowed me to learn everything I needed to know quicker than a traditional 16 week course. This allowed me to earn my degree faster. I would say don’t be scared. Just as soon as you started, it’s over in a flash. In the end, the program is excellent and it’s provided me the skills and knowledge needed to advance my career.

I had the pleasure of taking Dr. Grazia’s nutritional therapeutics course through UB’s online human nutrition program, and it was one of my favorite classes.  I really enjoyed his lectures and the information was very applicable to real life, so when I heard about the online D.H.Sc. program through UB, and that he was developing the curriculum, I jumped at the chance to apply.

My name is Kristen Rohrer. M.Ed., M.S., and I currently work as an adjunct faculty member at Anne Arundel Community College in Maryland, a nutrition educator, and group aerobics instructor at Jazzercise Fitness Center in Glen Burnie, MD.  I just finished a clinical nutrition internship at a chiropractic office in Annapolis, MD, and recently fulfilled the requirements for CNS certification which will allow me to oversee the clinical nutrition program at Jazzercise Fitness Center.

I had the pleasure of taking Dr. Grazia’s nutritional therapeutics course through UB’s online human nutrition program, and it was one of my favorite classes.  I really enjoyed his lectures and the information was very applicable to real life, so when I heard about the online D.H.Sc. program through UB, and that he was developing the curriculum, I jumped at the chance to apply.

I am in my first semester of the program and I am loving it; the instructors are phenomenal; information is presented clearly and effectively, discussion boards are dynamic and engaging, and the pacing of the program is designed to fit the busy needs of a health professional, which is a perfect fit for me and my demanding schedule.

My estimated semester for graduation is May, 2019, and with this degree, I will be eligible to teach health and nutrition courses at the university level, anywhere!  After graduating from UB’s Graduate Program in Human Nutrition, I feel that UB graduates stand out because of the quality of education, the knowledge of the instructors, and the curriculum design, and the D.H.Sc. program is no exception!  With the tools this program provides, I feel that I can become a leading health professional in my field.
