“I made the best decision…for my Master’s. Although I am learning from experts in their fields about reading, writing, data, art, photography, etc., I am also learning about people, culture, life, and myself through the interactions within class with the professors and fellow students. I know I couldn’t get this anywhere else.”

- Anthony Albrecht, MALS ‘16

“I have loved my time in the program. I came to Wesleyan to test out the GLS program but the courses, professors, and staff pulled me in. The flexibility of the program and the focus on writing in the courses have helped me pursue the education I’ve been seeking. It has been a perfect fit for my personal and professional goals.”

- Ryan Freeman – MALS and Graduate Certificate in Writing Candidate
