Corin Tubridy had been out of college for a while when she decided to pursue an advanced degree in social work. She had a family by this point, as well as a full-time social work job she needed to keep.
Tubridy knew it wouldn’t be easy. However, it turned out to be simpler than she expected, thanks to a flexible education offering from a prominent university not known for catering to nontraditional students.
The UW-Madison’s part-time Master of Social Work program let Tubridy take classes on Saturdays. She was also able to take them on the UW-Eau Claire campus, close to her home.
