I am a graduate of Carson-Newman University and I can't imagine going anywhere else to complete my Graduate studies. It is a wonderful small campus in the foothills of East Tennessee. Great teachers, professors, staff and carriculum.

I am just starting my first semester, but already the instructor has posted the syllabus and a personal instruction for his teaching styles. I feel connected.
Loved the interactive online cases, they were helpful in establishing assessment skills. Teachers were available to assist.
