I had not at all planned for this college. I applied because I had a few senior friends from my high school who were studying here. I did not expect to hear back. But I did. And I do not regret this at all. So yeah, I heard about this from my seniors and applied online. The application cost was $30.
The course was designed to give us the freedom to follow our passion. My subjects included Human Anatomy and Physiology I, Human Anatomy and Physiology II, Virology, Cancer Biology and Histology. I was able to learn and take my passion to a new level with the help of this curriculum.
I felt lucky to be a part of this university. I had constant support from my advisors, teachers, and classmates. Through the Lipscomb accounting program, I was able to connect with the president of an accounting firm in the USA. He helped me set my goals and gave me some great advice. I will always keep my university in contact and I truly value the support provided by the university.
This master's degree in the Accounting program required the business Core Curriculum and around seven additional courses. It was a very much varied and interesting course. I was required to complete the credit scores to successfully complete the course.
