I first chose Montclair State University to earn my SAC certification due to its accessibility and affordability. Yet, the experience I’ve had has greatly exceeded my expectations. In each course, I enjoyed learning from knowledgeable and highly qualified professors and engaged with a group of diverse classmates who bring valuable perspectives. While working full-time, this learning experience was challenging, meaningful, and manageable. The knowledge and insight I gained from this program already enhanced my practice as a School Counselor and I benefited personally, as a contributing member of society.
