Amy and her fiancé, Brett, had longed to travel abroad. However, she also had a goal of earning a masters during the same timeframe. Several friends mentioned CU Denver's flexible programs and after researching she found the Master of Information and Learning Technology (ILT) was a fit.
“While participating in ILT online courses, I visited Australia, Fiji, Iceland, Ireland, and Sweden and too many states in the US to count! This all would not have been possible if I had taken traditional face-to-face courses," said Amy.
Her two biggest obstacles were time zone calculations for assignment deadlines and internet access while on the go. “Even given the time zone change and other circumstances, my professors were understanding and beyond helpful,” recalls Amy. She was able to maintain a 4.0 GPA throughout the entire duration of the program and graduated as the ILT Outstanding Student of 2014.
Now married, Amy and Brett not only share their world travel experience, both also have graduate diplomas from CU Denver.
