"I chose Southern Utah University’s MFA program as a way to fuse my business background with my love of the arts. It combines theory, functional application and real-time opportunities into an educational experience that is both academic and practical. It served as a two year professional development seminar with the assistantship serving as a laboratory for the coursework. Great instructors and professional mentors helped me learn from both my triumphs and struggles."
