Jonathan Harding My Why

Master of Education, Higher Education Leadership & Policy

When I finished my bachelor’s, I wasn’t sure that what I studied was actually what I wanted to do. After looking around, I found out about a graduate assistant position and the master’s program that I am currently in, Master of Education in higher education leadership and policy. I am very passionate about education, and this program is a perfect fit for me because it allows me to study something I care about from a Christian perspective. Being a graduate assistant allows me to get hands-on experience by working in the Residential Life office with college students and different processes. When completing my program, I hope to work with students directly to help them succeed in college and prepare them for life after graduation.
