Alumnus - Grad Year 2008

Academics Rating

As a music education student, my course load was rather heavy. Many semesters, I took 7 - 8 classes whereas my peers were taking 5 at the most. It was completely worth it because music teachers from IWU are highly trained and ready for any job they apply for!
