As an ‘Airman Scholar’ I found the SU faculty and staff always willing to support me during my time as an MSSc student. Despite the fact that I was deployed all over the world, I honestly felt the level of support and encouragement I received made it feel like I was on campus!”

Jeremy McKenzieTheir limited residency program allows students to explore issues of significance with world class instructors with the benefits of both “brick and mortar” and online coursework. It allows students to experience the best of both worlds regardless of geographic location.
