I have always enjoyed learning. I had heard that the University of Nebraska-Lincoln offered a Master of Entomology degree completely online through their distance learning, and I was sold.
Being in the Army did not always allow me to attend classes. Because I am frequently out of town, the flexibility of an online program was important.
My experience with the University of Nebraska-Lincoln was tremendous. My professors, the VA coordinator and everyone who answered my questions at UNL were great. My degree advisor was truly an asset to the program and did a superb job managing the distance program.
My educational goal was to become more proficient with the entomology aspects of my job. Through the degree program, I learned a great deal about insects and their management, so it was invaluable. I was able to put into practice what I learned in my courses routinely.
