• The opportunity to learn from faculty who have taught and counseled in various professional settings

"It’s exciting to get to know our students and to see them learn and grow over the course of the program; apply the things they’ve learned in class as they work in their practicum and internship placements; develop their own identities and styles as emerging professionals; and go on to fulfilling careers in which they make a significant difference in people’s lives. I drive 2 hours and 106 miles round-trip every workday to teach in the MFC program at University of Mobile... and it’s worth every minute and every mile.”
