Marty Jensen “I selected Metropolitan State University for my bachelor's degree because the flexible classroom and online courses allowed me to fit school around my work and family schedule.  I also received credit for related professional training through evaluation of prior learning, which was invaluable. The fact that most instructors currently work in the fields they teach made the courses even more interesting and valuable to me.  Metropolitan State helped me achieve my career goal-Chief of Police.”
