Political Science Degrees
“I now manage the sustainable agriculture and rural development policy portfolios for the ranking member of the U.S. House of Representatives Subcommittee on Agriculture on the Appropriations Committee. I am also about to graduate with my masters in agro-terrorism. The education I received from the Political Science Department at MSU Denver supersedes my Master’s education, and has definitely helped me in my career.”
