"A lot of my journalism classes are not about learning, but about practicing. I'm not learning how to write; I'm practicing the style of writing. It shows me I can do what journalists are doing, go all the places they've gone, see what they've seen and write what they write."

Master of International Policy and Practice

"Some of my greatest experiences were talking to former ambassadors and academics who are well published and then listening to them both talk candidly with each other. These are things you can’t get out of a textbook or read in The Economist. Having peers from different walks of life who bring different perspectives also add to this advantage."

"You’ll be able to apply what you’re learning outside of the classroom. I took arabic and international relations courses, but it never really clicked until I was speaking with local Jordanians who lived through the historical events I was studying in class. Studying away from home places you outside your comfort zone and challenges you in ways you have never been challenged."
