I decided to go back to school as part of a career change. I live in Phoenix and first considered ASU just because it's the local University, but as I researched programs and compared them with other institutions, I realized ASU is very well ranked. I was impressed with the quality and experience of the faculty members, most of them have careers spanning the private and public sectors with a distinguished amount of research and publications under their belts. I am now in my first semester, and I am impressed with my Professors and the rigorous academics. The masters in Public Policy is also very flexible, there is a significant number of electives to choose from, and some classes are even offered during the summer, online or intensive formats. I am counting on ASU and the many resources available to students to help me forge a new path in my professional career.

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.

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.
