Marie N. BERNAL
PhD in Public Policy Program
One of the most rewarding aspects of the Ph.D. program in Public Policy is our exposure and close collaboration with a diverse group of students, faculty, and staff. Our ability to build good personal and working relationships with everyone in our nascent division allows us to broaden our perspectives and frame issues encompassing international and interdisciplinary views. This program has given me a variety of valuable professional opportunities, but what I value the most are the friendships that I will take and keep with me long after graduation.
