“Pursuing a degree in music and education taught me how to effectively pass on information to students and others. I was also able to hone my communication skills. I enjoyed the personal attention that was provided to each student due to the smaller class sizes. I also appreciated the support each faculty member provided to students. The individual attention from faculty members afforded me the chance to get more indepth in my subject area. I felt well prepared in the job field after graduating from UNK.”
