Pursuing graduate degree

I found the coursework to inspire critical thinking and to promote the academic skills necessary for my graduate work. Being a Research Assistant for the RAD Lab prepared me for advanced level research, academic writing, and presentations at professional and academic conferences.

The program has inspiring professors, a wealth of interesting courses, and rewarding hands-on opportunities that gave me the chance to dive deeper into the whole science. I was given so many experiences to learn that it influenced my decision to learn even more by attending graduate school.
