I cannot begin to enumerate the enormous benefit the Master of Education degree in Training and Development has had to my professional practice and career. From day one I gained skills and connections that fostered professional and personal growth in many areas. I was able to put into practice on a Tuesday what we discussed and learned on a Monday.  The degree prepared me for a professional change that continues my upward trajectory in the field of training and development.

The Training and Development Program at Penn State Harrisburg has expanded my view of the field. It makes you reflect and think critically about training, human resources development and organizational development. Specifically, it has taught me which intervention, whether training or non-training, would serve best the organization and the learners.

I have found that the greatest asset to this program is the flexibility; allowing me to explore other subject areas to broaden my overall educational experience. I enjoyed being in a small focused group of students while enrolled in this program. The faculty are well educated; research leaders in their particular field(s) of study.

The program helps make you a leader in this field through inquiry and exploration.  You learn more than just “how to train” or “how to develop” training initiatives.  The faculty understands the criticality of the roles in this industry and helps you learn how to think about how to be an innovator and change agent to meet the constantly changing business landscape.

This program will totally change the way you think about training! Embrace it! This program has taught me much more than I would have learned on my own. Why?
