ECE ELE Alum Lauren GlobettiLauren Globetti

"My experience in the Alternative Masters 5th Year program at UAB was excellent. I studied under inspiring professors with real world experience who took an active interest in my education and worked hard to foster and support all of their students. I met likeminded people who have become friends and even colleagues and I formed a strong foundation of knowledge to begin my career as an educator. I am grateful to UAB for helping to mold me into the educator I’ve become."
