"My adviser was fantastic. I wanted to focus on business, so she came up with a lot of ideas for me to get there with the individualized degree program. I also didn’t know I could build a portfolio to demonstrate my skills and knowledge for prior learning credit and apply those credits toward my degree. I finished my degree in a little over a year."
"I wanted to finish my degree to further my career. I felt I couldn’t move up or move on without it. I also have kids, and I wanted to be a good example for them. My degree was 25 years in the making. The degree programs offered by University College are a great opportunity for people in my situation who are older, non-traditional learners."
UToledo’s broad curriculum gives you the flexibility to shape your own degree and choose classes from numerous academic departments.
Students in the University Studies degree program can earn credit for internships or field experiences. You can substitute those experiences for your senior capstone project.
