Emily Jackson '22

I wanted a program that would allow me to seamlessly continue my education, and Bloomsburg University's M.S in I.T program offered that through their 4+1 program. Halfway through completing my master's degree, I was offered a full-time position and still had the flexibility to train for and begin my new career. I wouldn't have had the opportunity to earn my master's while starting a new chapter in my life anywhere else.
