What Our Students Are Saying

“I just wanted to take a moment to express what a great experience I have had to this point in the Plymouth State CAGS classes offered at the SPDC in Exeter.I just completed a class titled “Qualitative Methodology and Applied Research Design.” The title alone, can lead one to be intimidated. The experience was enriching, rewarding, and wonderful.”
