“My time at Brock was valuable not only because of what I learned in the classroom, but because of the opportunities I had outside the classroom. As a TA I gained valuable teaching experience and as an RA I was able to put into practice what I had learned in the classroom about research as well as learn more about the ins and outs of conducting research. In addition, there were many opportunities throughout the university to connect with other students, participate in conferences, and connect with scholars. All of the faculty I encountered were friendly and willing to help students in whatever way they could, encouraged us to push our thinking, and provided opportunities to grow ourselves as students.
I chose Brock for my graduate work because of the support and funding they provide students looking to do research, and they provide flexibility in terms of your program (i.e. course-based, MRP, thesis). They also offered a specialty and a variety of courses I was interested in.
I thoroughly enjoyed my time at Brock. I felt like I got the most of my time there by getting involved in a variety of capacities. The Master of Education program allowed me to develop my critical thinking and research skills through diverse experiences in and out of the classroom. I would highly recommend this program to those interested.”
