I think Saint Joseph’s offers me the opportunity to be a full-time professional, a full-time mom, as well as a full-time student.
GERMAINE HENDON: And I'm a single mother of two young children. I work full time in a professional atmosphere. And I just needed to find a convenient way to complete my master's degree.
When it comes to participating in St. Joseph's University online program, I enjoy the flexibility of the program. I think it's awesome that I don't have to be confined to a specific time frame of when I complete my assignments or when I log on to class discussions. I have the flexibility to work around my everyday normal routine.
Faculty seems to understand the fact that we are busy working professionals. They're very flexible and when it comes to class hours. They're willing to go above and beyond. We had the opportunity to actually go out and find a real-life working criminal justice program and evaluate the effectiveness of the program. So I love the hands-on field experience. I was able to give my input, to express my ideals and suggestions for the program, and actually see change happen in that program.
