Back to school at 65

This is an up-to-date blog of my journey “back to school.” In May 2010, having just turned 65, I began graduate studies at the University of Alberta, in Edmonton, towards the completion of a Master of Arts in Communication and Technology. The blog chronicles my personal account of the journey. You are welcome to visit the blog, if you want some encouragement on your journey before and after 65 years of age. After I completed my MA, Master of Arts in Communication and Technology, I enrolled in Doctoral studies at St. Stephen’s College / University of Alberta where my research focus is art, critical thought, and spirituality. This will complete my academic journey that began with an Associate Degree (AOCA) at the Ontario College of Art & Design (now OCAD University), a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree from Thompson Rivers University, BC, and an MA from UofA, and my current doctoral research program at SSC. Unless of course if I remain bitten by the academic bug and pursue post doctoral research.
