Success Stories

“I’m so excited to officially be an alumna of Regent University with my Master of Arts in Journalism.”

Nicole Gamboni, M.A. in Journalism, 2019 Financial Services Professional, MassMutual Commonwealth

“When I came to Regent, it was really out of a place of what I call vocational desperation. I had a degree in theology, but a strong sense of calling toward film. Regent helped me sort out my future and set me on a path I never dreamed of before. Now, I'm a teacher and a filmmaker. ”

Joshua Overbay, MFA, 2010 Filmmaker

“When I came to Regent, life had kind of clipped my wings. In hindsight, I see that Regent wasn’t so much a restoration project, but rather a new-construction project. ”

Bruce Long, M.A. in Cinema/ TV Acting & Directing, 2001 Executive Director, CITA Producer, The Repertoire Fund

“When I started my master's in Summer 2017, I had no idea what was ahead. I'm thankful for everything I was able to learn during my time at Regent and know it will open doors.”

Amber Huckaby, M.A. in Film-Television, 2020

“We were taught practical skills for the workplace in Regent's classroom. Now I can see how they work in a professional environment.”

Ryan Clemens, MFA, 2010 Acting
