Excelsior Graduate earns Master's degree. Oh yeah, she's 14

Dorothy Tillman came up on this forum almost 2 years ago when she graduated from Excelsior with her Bachelor's degree:

 https://www.degreeforum.net/mybb/Thread-...ngineering 

There were comments on the thread about Excelsior being a joke if they let 12 year olds graduate. Well she has gone on to graduate with a Master's degree and is, "currently working on a book about her life, as well as helping build STEM labs for girls in South Africa." I think it's clear that she is exceptional and she provides further proof that the big 3 can be a stepping stone on to bigger and better things.

from the article
A 14-year-old from the South Side of Chicago just received her master's degree in environmental engineering.

but I don't see a master's degree in environmental engineering -- https://unity.edu/program-search/

they offer
M.S. Environmental Geographic Information Science - https://unity.edu/wp-content/uploads/202...-Sheet.pdf
M.S. Environmental Science - https://unity.edu/wp-content/uploads/202...-Sheet.pdf
M.S. Environmental Studies and Sustainability - https://unity.edu/wp-content/uploads/202...-Sheet.pdf

so maybe one of those

from the contents of the article I'm guessing Environmental Studies and Sustainability
still impressive

Yes they definitely wrote in the wrong degree. According to the actual graduation commencement for Unity College she got: M.S. in Professional Science – Sustainability Science.
