Pros are the people in my cohort and the helpful professors.

The cohort model of this program is its strength and potential weakness if you end up with the wrong elements. However, faculty access and support services are excellent.

Degree: Public Policy

Faculty is very approachable and involved. The classes are small and the instructors make themselves available for questions. They also try to be flexible in their assignments knowing that most students in a graduate program are working as well. The only con I can think of, is not being able to take some of this program online.

The best part of the Policy Studies Program at UW Bothell so far has been the support of the faculty and staff. Any time I had a question or issue, there was always someone willing and able to help.

The Graduate program offers so much flexibility and I think this is a huge benefit for those pursuing a career in policy. The teachers are approachable and they are always available to help. The material in its entirely only helps you so much so its very imperative to find outside hands on experience that matches what we do in the class room. My only "compliant" is that I wish there was more student diversity in the Policy Masters program and I hope to see more of this in the future
