  • “I really enjoyed my master’s degree because Keiser creates an environment that is conducive for their students to succeed in the program. All of my professors always made themselves available to help guide and encourage me.  Therefore, as soon as I discovered that they were going to begin their [doctoral] program, I immediately made the decision to pursue my degree.  I have completed my first year in the program and have enjoyed the program as much as I enjoyed the master’s degree program.”
