"Lesley is an excellent choice. The small classes, excellent professors, and caring students all contributed to my success. I attended a prestigious school in NYC for my master's degree and was surprised to find that much of the course content had already been presented at Lesley. This university is the right choice if you're seeking a program that will prepare you properly and carry you through all phases of your career."
