Going for my doctorate gave me the confidence to know I could do the superintendent job and do it well. When I started the doctoral program, I was a vice principal in Linden. What I learned during the program made me apply for a principal position, which I got."
At Kean, we believe learning and job growth extend far beyond the walls of our classrooms. That's why we encourage you to take advantage of a variety of research opportunities available to you, study abroad and pursue internships that will advance your career or set the stage for another advanced degree.
