Master of Education
“An aspect that set the [MEd] program apart was six-week courses rather than 15-week courses. This setup was convenient and accessible; I knew that even with my busy schedule, this degree was attainable.” — Alexis Swartz ’16, M ’20

Physician Assistant Studies
“The reason I chose Mount was the faculty and staff. PA programs all over can boast about their stats and the equipment they have, but none of that matters if the people running the show aren’t just as exceptional.”  Kayla Young M ’22

“I would recommend Mount Union’s PT program because it’s innovative. We have many valuable resources at our disposal that enrich our learning experience.” — Ivan Haggins D ’19
