What are your main academic/policy areas of interest and what led you to those interests?
My area of concentration is policy analysis, but I have focused on international security policy, and African policy combined with nonprofit management. Curiosity led me down this path. I have always been passionate about international policy, and given my volunteer past in nonprofit organizations it only made sense to work to better understand how to make them more successful.
Is there anything else you would like prospective students to know about you or your experience in the program?
The professors have been incredible and bring a wealth of knowledge and experience in the field to the table that they are willing to share, which makes you feel more a part of the university even when working remotely through O’Neill Online. What has been fascinating to me is the ability to complete the program at your pace. Not all programs provide you that luxury. I have met students in year three or four of the program, while I personally hope to complete the program this July in only 15 months. O’Neill Online gives you a lot of flexibility.
