I am so thankful to have had the opportunity to pursue my Master’s Degree in History through the University of North Alabama. Through a variety of online and night classes I was able to continue working while working towards my goals. The professors were always willing to answer any questions that I had and helped me grow so much as a teacher and historian. I would highly suggest applying at UNA.
