Degree: Public Policy
Graduation Year: 2019

The M.A. in Educational Policy and Evaluation appeals to me because the benefits of this degree can be applied in the classroom as a teacher, or as a policy maker working within the education system. I know that this degree will make me a more effective instructor because I will have a greater understanding of why certain policies are in place, and how the implication of new policies could potentially benefit or harm students academically. This degree will also be one of my stepping stones for obtaining a PhD in Educational Psychology. I intend to continue researching the aspects of human circumstance that affect an individuals educational aptitude, such as socioeconomics, ethnicity, and demographic characteristics. A greater understanding of this topic will allow teachers, and policy makers to comprehend the obstacles that hold students back from achievement, so that they can be changed and all students will have the ability to succeed no matter the circumstances they were born into.

Degree: Public Policy
Graduation Year: 2017

I have not gotten much into the program yet but I do believe this program is going to be able to help me turn my dream into reality. I have done online schools before and because of the flexibility, it worked out best for me. I have a full-time job and will be attending school full-time. Scholarships like these are a great way to help the the out of pocket cost to a minimum.

Degree: Public Policy
Graduation Year: 2017

This is a very demanding graduate program because it deals with the issues of today and how we can better prepare ourselves for emergencies. This program is about training America's young men and women how to think in emergency or crisis situations and choose the best course of action. There is a lot of outside effort that has to be put into this degree, it is not something that you can just breeze through and say you did. Real world problems that eventually will come to pass, and it is up to the education that is being taught right now for me to make a decision that could save your life.

The Arizona State University of School of Public Affairs is an excellent graduate school. They have an amazing faculty that is very knowledgeable and understanding of being a graduate student.

Degree: Public Policy
Graduation Year: 2013

The program offers a wide range of relevant courses, many top-class Faculty members offer their support and resources for learning. As always in life, what you take from the program depends on your own motivation and willingness to allocate your time and effort. If you go to ASU to get your PhD - recognize early on that you have a vast amount of resources at your disposal but you need to be active and results-oriented to take full advantage of them :). Good luck!

Degree: Public Policy
Graduation Year: 2015

The problem I have is that it is almost impossible to take care of my responsibilities outside of school (like paying utilities and feeding my kids) and finish the program. With the amount of returning students there are I would think that who ever designs these programs would keep us in mind when doing so
