What you thought of the professors?  My professors were invested in me and my education from day one. I always felt that I had the support that I needed to finish the program to the best of my ability.

Why pursue an MA in your emphasis?  I chose Hispanic Linguistics because the structure of languages fascinates me.

Favorite experience?  Finishing my thesis and being able to defend it was my favorite and most rewarding experience.

Any other useful information to students looking into the program?  The most important decision that you will make in the program will be who your thesis chair will be. Make sure that it is someone that you work well with and will motivate you until its completion. Also, don’t be afraid to change your chair or committee if you feel the need to.
