Thomas earned his Master of Arts in National Security and Strategic Studies from the U.S. Naval War College in 2009 and his Master of Arts in Public Administration from Troy University in 1999. In 2022, he added one more master’s—Master of Science in Information Management Technology from University of Arkansas Grantham.
Recently, we caught up with Thomas and asked about his studies at UA Grantham:
I chose UA Grantham because the institution allows students to pursue their degree on their own terms. I was able to complete my discussions, assignments, and even the majority of my exams when I had the time to do so. My studies never interfered with my job or my family life.
I liked the assignments best, especially those involving project management. They were challenging and they forced me to rely on my own research capabilities. Nevertheless, my professors were always there to quickly answer whatever questions I had. My professors allowed me to align my studies with my work experiences and future endeavors. My advisor took the time to check on me from time to time. It was very much appreciated.
I already work in the IT Management field for the federal government as a Chief Information Officer. My pursuit of this degree allowed me to confirm or deny whether I was using the right IT business processes.
I’m happy to say that this is my third master's degree. This one was really for my personal gratification.
University of Arkansas Grantham was a great choice for me. I’m looking into other areas (at UA Grantham) in which to continue my education. I have recommended UA Grantham to many of my co-workers.
There is no guarantee, express or implied, that a college degree or certificate from University of Arkansas Grantham will improve employment prospects, earnings, earnings potential, or career advancement opportunities.
Graduate Mario N. chose to pursue his communications degree from UA Grantham because he wanted a top-tier education from a university that could also accommodate his needs. Mario is grateful for the continuous feedback and support he received throughout his college journey, and for the world of opportunities his degree has opened up for him.
Graduate Jay-R Maddela-LaCambra, completed his finals early in the summer of 2021—the last box to check toward his master’s degree in Healthcare Administration from Grantham University. Far from farewell, he instead took a deep breath in preparation for his pursuance of yet another Grantham degree—this time for business.
