"The course units can be directly applied to my professional context."

- Steven Sengstock, Student of Master of Education (Special Education)
"Torrens presented itself as an institution 100% committed to higher learning that could be applied directly and meaningfully in the workplace. Now that I’m a year into my Master course, I haven’t been disappointed. Almost every single reading and conversation has generated a new and exciting initiative for me to launch at work. My favorite part of studying is how much work its designers and facilitators have done to make it apply directly to my professional context."
