…like Kweku and Lu Ann.
Kweku Osei came to the United States from the Republic of Ghana in 1999 — with only $300 in his pocket — and a dream. That dream was education. Today, he’s a full-time nurse and graduate of Mizzou — he earned his doctor of nursing practice with an emphasis in family nurse practitioner. Kweku says that Mizzou’s online format allowed him to work and take care of family responsibilities – which includes 3 children.
Lu Ann Cahn-Houser earned a master’s in journalism with an emphasis in media management — a degree that she says was “10 years in the making.” And it all started with a dare. Lu Ann was feeling “stuck.” Knowing she needed a change, her daughter dared her to do something new every day for a year. One of these dares was to earn her master’s degree. Because she found that a traditional in-seat program wouldn’t work with her busy career, family life, and other obligations, she signed onto Mizzou’s online program — and discovered it was a perfect fit.
These are just two stories out of thousands. Each one of our students have very personal and unique stories to tell about what brought them to us — how it’s changed their lives — and how happy they are that they chose Mizzou Online.
Lu Ann says: “Even though you’re getting your degree online, you’re getting Mizzou’s brand of this very highly respected journalism program. I was impressed with my professors all along the way. I was learning in a new way. I was really being challenged.”
Kweku says: “I cannot thank the University of Missouri Sinclair School of Nursing enough because they have really given me an opportunity. In doing so, they have also prepared me very well for the real world.
So, let us show you what Mizzou Online is all about. In these uncertain times, it’s okay to keep thinking about what’s next for your career. And if you’re longing for a degree or a new direction, we can help you make that happen.
