B.S. in Political Science and Public Administration Student
My committee didn’t hand me anything. They didn’t give me any freebies. It was a collaborative working relationship. I admitted to them that I needed them to point me in the right direction.
I wish to pursue a PhD in Public Policy and Administration. It will be very beneficial to me because I can complete the program faster than normal based on my academic achievements in the same department.
The most rewarding aspect of pursuing a degree at Walden was the opportunities that opened up after graduating.
