67 Years of Learning! Next Step? Graduate School!

Velda Metelmann recently completed her undergraduate degree in Interdisciplinary Studies, with concentrations in English Literature & Writing and Human Studies, and is now in a graduate program to earn her Masters!  Congratulations, Velda!

As part of her undergraduate program, Velda earned 25 credits for the following courses through Prior Learning Assessment:

  • Effective Listening
  • Public Presentations
  • Human Emotion
  • Publications and Performance
  • Women Working for Change
  • Readings and Special Project in the Teachings of Abd’ul-Bahá

In her Final Reflection Essay, Velda talked about how writing for PLA credits increased her confidence in her writing skills, so that now a 6-8 page term paper seems like an easy task after working on a 20-25 page PLA essay. She also commented that, “My love of writing has been increased as well as my skill in the art, and I look forward to my next terms with excitement.”

In this video Velda shares her experience in the PLA program – her enthusiasm for life-long learning is infectious!
