How did you hear about Queen's online options, and what made you choose Queen's?

I researched online learning on the internet and Queens was at the top of the list. After contacting the university and the professors in the art history and history departments it was decided that I could pursue a degree entirely online. Once accepted I've never looked back.

Take a moment to introduce yourself

My name is Mark Leonard Reaume, I live in northern Ontario and work as a computer engineer for the provincial government.

I previously studied fine art at the Ontario College of Art in Toronto, Ont. I then studied commercial art and received college diplomas in graphic design, computer graphics and photography from Sheridan College in Oakville, Ont.

After working as a graphic artist and computer graphics specialist in studios, I taught graphic design and computer graphics at a local community college

As a Microsoft certified IT systems engineer and Cisco certified network specialist, I have been a senior technical IT consultant working within the Ontario Government for the past 20 years and have been a computer specialist for over 35 years.

In my spare time I restore vintage Japanese motorcycles and my son and I build and race motorcycles in the North American Vintage Road Racing Association (VRRA)

Would you recommend online learning to others? Why/why not?

Yes I would recommend online learning to everyone. The courses are very well designed and quite challenging. Interaction with the instructors and other students is always easy through Queens email and course questions posed to the online sites.

What surprised you the most about online learning?

Queens online experience is professional, secure and exciting.

What are your hopes/dreams/ambitions after your courses/program?

After finishing my undergraduate degree, I intend to complete a graduate degree, a masters degree and a doctorate. 

I would also like to continue teaching at the post graduate level after I retire from the government in 2 years.
