(Student Profile)

Hallie Morrison

“Generally, my experience with Uversity was positively life-changing… I gained significant professional connections as well as professional experience in my area (a/r/tography–artist-researcher-teacher), which was a fantastic bonus to the experience. I designed my own Masters, across departments of Art Therapy, Art and Design Education, and Arts and Process, which was made possible by the Uversity program. I also completed an additional higher education certificate (Global Development Education through Arts/Creativity and Change) simultaneous to the Uversity Masters, which was possible through the partner institution I was located at. I gained a degree and a specialty certificate in one year. I was the first student to study across 3 different departments at the Cork Institution of Technology-Crawford College of Art and Design, and had almost every door and opportunity available to me because of the nature of my program. I accomplished a dissertation of written word and arts-based education research, a multidisciplinary dissertation.
