BA Communication - Public Relations

"It was the right time, and being online, it's always the right place."

This is my third major and third college. Prior to SNHU, I attended a community college, where I was a criminal justice major, and a private college, where I was a political science major. Now I am studying communication. At both the community college and private college, things just didn't click. I didn't feel like I fit in with the traditional college kids. After my stint as a poli-sci major, I took a hiatus partly due to money, partly due to lack of motivation, and largely because I was going to be deployed.

Deploying was probably the best "soul searching" event in my life thus far. During my time away, I realized what I did in the Army was what I wanted to do in life. I researched colleges in Maine that had PR programs, but none of them compared to what I could get at SNHU. Thank goodness because I might not have ended up taking online classes in a field I enjoy. It was the right time, and being online, it's always the right place. SNHU’s online MA in Communication was just my right fit.
