Success Stories

“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

“My Regent learning experience helped inform my perspective on clients, products, the work environment and competitors, which heavily influences the work that I do.”

Shé Hall, M.A., 2011 Digital Media

“My identity isn’t in whether or not I get a role; what’s important is that I’m being a good witness, that I’m being a light and loving support to other actors.”

Ashley Dakin, MFA, 2013

“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

“It’s been a long road of late nights and long mornings, but I made it.”

Paola Albarran, Ph.D. in Communication, 2020 News Anchor, Telemundo Amarillo; College Teacher, West Texas A&M University

Graduates go on to have successful careers in the global marketplace, including positions at Fortune 100 companies.
