Make your education matter. Healthcare and Health Science related fields attract individuals with a strong need to care and support people, with a strong sense of purpose and desire to make things better, and who make a difference in their communities.
As soon as I became a Public Health major, it was like a whole new perspective as a student here at Georgia Southern. I have professors that knew me on a first name basis out of hundreds of students that really took interest in me as a student and really embarked on helping me grow as a professional, as an individual and in knowledge, as a person and growing more confident in myself to the point now where I'm actually faculty. I actually teach along with the people who helped me get to where I wanted to be.
Georgia Southern has given me the opportunity to go out into the local Savannah community, and I've been able to observe other speech therapists in the school system. And I go, almost weekly, and I've been able to see the progress and the meaningful progress that these speech therapists have made on these kids' lives. And I just can't wait to be able to do it myself.
Through this program, you're exposed to a lot of different things. So working closely with the different professors associated with the college, different internships and just opportunities in general, that will take you further. So I'm definitely happy to be a part of this program and just to see where it takes me in the near future,
A degree or certificate from Georgia Southern can provide you with the skills and the knowledge to make you an in demand asset in today's healthcare world. But we also provide something more: a strong sense of caring and community, a strong sense of purpose about helping others and why we do what we do.
I think as a non traditional student, the opportunity to be able to work and continue my education was invaluable. I would recommend to any person who is currently a Public Health practitioner to consider this program.
The professors over there, they cultivate you. They see your potential, once you step through that door. They're trained to do that. And once they see it, they cultivate it, they mold it, and they just bring the best out of you. And this has pushed me to be a way better me.
The program is very challenging, and that set me up to meet and exceed my goals anytime I faced a challenge in my life since then.
Now I feel great. I really feel like I'm ready to go after graduation, pass my boards and begin working. And not only am I going to begin working and be any therapist. I feel like I can be an exceptional therapist.
