In Their Words

  • Yerim Kim

    "From choosing my own curriculum to thinking for myself in my classes, I was always in charge. The program doesn’t try to mold you into a certain type of student/professional.

    It encourages you to figure our who you are and helps you get there. The fact that you get to choose your classes allows you to specialize in an area even before you enter the work force."
