"GCU treats each of their students as an individual learner, and each learner is prepared for their doctoral journey in a very thorough manner. GCU provided a clear and accurately measured path to achieving my doctoral degree. Before the first class was finished, I had already learned a great deal about my doctoral journey. Not only does GCU provide a clear and attainable path for doctoral learners, but they also provide goals, timelines and resources."
