2019-2020 Social Work Graduate


Paula Jean Dudley

Master's in Social Work

What is your favorite thing about BYU?

I love the investment that BYU makes in each of it's students-not speaking in just financial terms but also in emotional terms. I felt that I had a place among my peers and had a voice-should I choose to use it. I felt I was changed for the better by allowing myself to become immersed in a culture of love and learning.

Who would you like to say thanks to?

The wonderful faculty and staff members for the BYU Social Work program. They helped me more than words can say. I have the utmost respect for them and their efforts. My cohort was also exceptional! I learned so much from every one of my classmates and felt blessed the entire journey to get to know them! Special thanks to my family, friends, and cheerleaders who kept me going on the hard days. I couldn't have done this without you!

What are your plans for after BYU?

I accepted a part-time job at a private practice working with children and married couples. I also have plans to travel and to spend as much time with my family as possible!
