Kate, would you send me more information on the program you are enrolled
in--i.e. website, e-mail etc. How much time per day do you spend on the
program? Are there any thesis writings required, etc.? I'm intrigued by
the possibility of getting a Masters Degree online!!!

Look forward to hearing from you.
