“The professors at Bloustein are extremely dedicated and experienced. I enjoyed the camaraderie with the other students and the course selection is varied enough to support a wide range of policy interests.  I also valued the opportunity to develop a personalized course of study and to work at three different research centers, each of which afforded me valuable new insight into data collection and analysis, both of which are critical skills in my current job.”
