She earned her Bachelor of Arts in English and English literature from SookMyung Women’s University in Seoul, South Korea. She then “wanted to find an authentic university in the U.S. for my master’s degree. While navigating many universities and degrees, I was so glad to find that Stout was providing online courses.”
Doe graduated from UW-Stout’s online master’s in technical and professional communication program on Dec. 17.
As an international student with the Office of International Education, she watched the Graduate School commencement ceremony virtually at home. She will continue to work as an English instructor and plans to earn her Ph.D. in psychology, possibly from an online program in the U.S.
How has Stout prepared you to work in your field?
I feel more confident. The discussions with my classmates and professors helped me to think and speak critically and write logically.
As an English instructor, these learning experiences surely helped me to incorporate my upgraded skills in the classroom for my students.
