I am proud of my Museum Studies certificates and happy that I chose IVC. The experience gave me the confidence to continue my studies and I then applied to grad school. Now, I have an MA in Art.

“IVC helped prepare me to manage my time more efficiently. I worked multiple jobs and was a full-time student at IVC. I learned to juggle multiple tasks which has translated to my work as an intern.”
