The Ed.M. program is truly as exceptional as it is unique. Overall, it provides a thorough knowledge base with valuable insights into the many practical disciplines which encompass science, and its increasing complexities. Essential factual information is presented as well as surrounding issues; relevance, benefits, potential detriments, and ethical and moral challenges are all explored to foster comprehensive understanding. The structured online sessions are always open and accessible for convenience around work schedules and family life. 

The courses are enhanced by the excellent department staff and students from diverse backgrounds, allowing for an experience to view arising issues in the advancements of science and technology from differing perspectives. Of particular value is the in-depth discussions provided by fellow students, a well-rounded group of professionals from the various fields of medical, health, law, and education. Each offering their firsthand professional expertise on the variety of topics covered in the courses.

My initial intent was to pursue a degree in public health, and after many months of searching for the right one, I discovered this program. I made the right decision- the quality of knowledge I obtained from the Science and the Public program is unparalleled!
