My professors know my name and interests and are always willing to meet to discuss projects, classes, or careers. Staff go above and beyond to help students with, quite literally, anything. It’s a nice community feel at the La Follette School.

I’ve learned so much! Especially about subjects that are so useful but had always grossed me out (statistics and economics). It’s also incredibly rewarding to be immersed in a place where so much learning is happening ... definitely an encouraging environment. And there are so many opportunities and resources that allow you to do whatever you want here.

I plan to work in Chicago either in the public or nonprofit sector after graduation. I would love to work in the local government such as Cook County or the City of Chicago.

The best thing the La Follette School has done for me is strengthened my quantitative skills. When I first started grad school, I was a bit worried about being enrolled in classes such as statistics, but I am very grateful for it now. These skills helped me secure an internship and make me a much more well-rounded student and job candidate.

After completing my terminal degree, I want to work for a salient agricultural-research organization that has tangible influence on food policy – such as the US Department of Agriculture, Food & Drug Administration, or International Food Policy Research Institute.

The main thing that drew me to the La Follette School was the flexible curriculum. In my previous degrees, the curriculum was always very specialized and rigid, and I really wanted a more liberal arts style education from my graduate studies.

My career goal is to fight for policies and candidates that help people and strengthen our democracy.

I highly recommend applying for the La Follette School Summer Policy Learning Experience (internship grant) – it made possible my internship in Portugal!

I envision a future in which all groups – public and private – have a vested interest in a sustainable planet and human welfare at large.

I was attracted to the La Follette School because of its expertise in social policy, small class size, flexible courses structure, and family-like atmosphere.
