Doctoral degree helped him fulfill a lifelong dream

November 04, 2021 / by / 0 Comment

Dr. Corey Shaun Owens knew when he was 12 that he would need a doctorate to achieve his goal of becoming a college professor. He earned that degree last year and, after riding out the pandemic, used it to get a teaching job and eventually a program director role at the University of Louisville. He said it might not have been possible without his experience at GCU. “It was the period that allowed me to put the check next to that goal and say, ‘I now know that I can become a college professor at an institution because of Grand Canyon University,’” he said.
