My coursework provided the solid foundation in American politics that has helped me stand out in my positions. I was lucky to have professors who pushed me to do the best work possible in every venue from the classroom to the newsroom. I’m extremely grateful for the excellent experiences I had as a student at MMC and the way it has prepared me a great career.”</p></div> <div class="lw_profiles_name"><a href="/live/profiles/1283-molly-ward">Molly Ward</a></div><div class="lw_profiles_104"><p> Class of 2015, Major in <a href="/departments/political-science/">Political Science</a></p></div>

When I was a freshman at College, I believed that a problem our generation was facing was ‘lack of curiosity.’ The IS program opened my eyes into the world of research and how we can use research to ask questions about the world in which we live in. My current work is a testament to that. The IS program allowed me to incorporate my own culture and ethnic background in my studies and reimagined the ideal culture of an undergraduate experience. The professors who served as mentors prepared me for any kinds of career, I wanted to pursue. The skills and experiences I have gained as a student in this program, enables me to translate what I have learned and share with those that I have left behind.”</p></div> <div class="lw_profiles_name"><a href="/live/profiles/1243-sameera-uddin">Sameera Uddin</a></div><div class="lw_profiles_104"><p> Class of 2014, Major in <a href="/departments/political-science/" target="_blank">Political Science</a> and Minor in <a href="/departments/international-studies/minors/international-studies.php" target="_blank">International Studies</a></p></div>

Small class sizes enabled my close relationships with professors and allowed me to dig into political theory and history while connecting it to the issues I am most concerned with. Professors encouraged me to follow my passions, leading me to obtaining the Jeanette K. Watson Fellowship. And then, of course, there was the small matter of living in New York City. I was simultaneously part of a small, vibrant and engaged community at college while also being part of larger communities in New York. <strong>I loved every minute of it</strong>.”</p></div> <div class="lw_profiles_name"><a href="/live/profiles/1142-alex-kane">Alex Kane</a></div><div class="lw_profiles_104"><p> Class of 2011, Major in <a href="/departments/political-science/">Political Science</a></p></div>
