    My University will become a new model for higher education by being inclusive, agile, and responsive, offering diverse scholarly and creative educational experiences, pathways, environments, and services to meet the needs of all students. It was maintaining agility by strategically delivering organizational capacity across the institution. After securing a GPA of around 9, I had applied through an online application form.

    Course Curriculum :

    My Cyber Security program is intended for computer scientists or computer engineers who wish to focus their careers in cybersecurity. As a result of this program, I understand cryptography, malware attack and defense principles, common network-based threats and countermeasures, and cyber forensics. Courses in this program may count toward Rowan's Master of Science in Computer Science requirements.

    I could not get admission to the Bachelor of Science in Nutrition back in my home country. So applied for the same course in the USA. Many of the universities selected me but I took admission to Rowan University. Comparatively easy application, low fee structure, availability of campus accommodation, and the university's ranking made me apply to it.

    Course Curriculum :

    The course will prepare me in crucial areas of expertise to help me serve clients better in hospital, worksite, community, and other wellness and fitness programs.

    As an 11th grader, I was unsure of what I wanted to study in college so, I ended up doing my first two years at a community college to find out what I really wanted to study. At the time, I was really into fitness and wellness so, I found this program at Rowan University in Health and Wellness. The transfer process was so simple. I just applied online, waived the application fee since I was on financial aid. I sent in my transcripts and was accepted within a month! I chose Rowan because it was the only school in my area (15 minutes from my house) that offered the Health and Wellness Program that I wanted. It was also very affordable. I've been going here for almost 6 years now (undergrad and grad) and I love it!

    Exams :

    This program was exactly what I was looking for and it was pretty challenging and got me out of my comfort zone. My SAT was in 1580, and my ACT was 29. Class sizes are. 20-30 students. There are no minimum scores to get into this program but you must get at least a C- in all courses to continue in the program. The credits are 30 for the M.A.
