In my program I have had the chance to immerse myself in a wide variety of current events oriented special topics courses.
I chose to pursue my graduate degree at the University of New Haven because the National Security program is only offered at a few institutions across the country. I had an amazing experience at the University of New Haven as an undergraduate and felt that the offerings within the graduate program were a perfect fit for my long-term interests.
My favorite course has been National Security Strategy and Policy, which was a weekend course. At first I was a bit skeptical because of the weekend commitment to the class; however, once it started I was very pleased. The content and delivery of the course was perfect and I walked away from the class retaining lots of pertinent information relevant to my field.
In my program I have had the chance to immerse myself in a wide variety of current events oriented special topics courses. This has allowed me to gain knowledge from experts in my field on the most important issues in the national security arena today.
My graduate degree has given me the chance to network a lot. I have been able to interact with professionals in both the private and public sectors of the national security enterprise. Much of this was due to the relationships that I created with my professors and peers.
Outside of the classroom, I served as the Vice President of Community Outreach for the Graduate Student Council. This position allowed me to facilitate community service oriented events for graduate students with the help of local partners and on campus offices.
