• The Human Exceptionalities degree program truly widened my view on the education system and the best ways to serve students that are differently-abled. My professors were willing to go above and beyond to make sure that I was
    prepared to continue and obtain my master’s degree. As a second year OT student, I am able to have a different viewpoint and see my clients from multiple perspectives due to my Human Exceptionalities degree.
