A message from Professor Brewer

For many students, college is a very unfamiliar experience. One of my most important jobs as a program director is to work closely with students to help guide them through this new and exciting world of academics. I am honored to support students as they choose courses based on their curiosities and interests and grow into their new roles as students, graduates, and ultimately, professionals.

The Professional Studies and General Studies programs empower students to explore subjects and programs while focusing on their core classes and building a foundation for their future career.

Through each program, my sincere hope is that students see themselves as agents of change and people who have the ability, expertise, and resources to better the world around them.

I look forward to supporting you on your personal and professional journey!

Best regards,
Nicole Brewer, M.A., Program Director
