WTAMU is amazing; what stands out to me is the faculty. The professors and administrators are dedicated to helping each student succeed. If it didn’t have incredible faculty, it would still provide a solid education. The faculty WTAMU is what has given me a well-developed network of caring professionals supporting me as I move toward my career.

The professors are average professors. The material is typical, it Honeslty felt like undergrad minus all the pointless elective classes. You get to simply focus on your specific field.
The coursework at WTAMU comprehensive and engaging. It is helping me to build a foundation of knowledge and professional confidence. If I were hiring for a company, I’d absolutely trust graduates from this school.
