“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.”

“I decided to pursue a Master’s Degree in Urban Planning and Policy. The Political Science faculty at MSU Denver actually had a lot to do with that choice! I had taken the Urban Politics class in 2014. It was super memorable and was actually one my favorite classes during college. After some time to reflect on what I wanted to do next, I decided to go forward with this program, considering how much I loved that class.”
