“At SJU, I was able to combine my interests in international relations and political science with public health. In my current role, I truly have the experience of working at the intersection of policy and law, but also health care and community development. It’s perfect for allowing me to combine all of these very different disciplines in a way that’s impactful.”

“Data is complex. In one of my classes at Saint Joseph’s, we mined a dataset from a Latin American school network, provided analysis and visualization, and had to tell a compelling story to drive insight. Having the chance to use real data prepared me for the unpredictability of real-world data analysis.”

“Thankfully, I’m at a place where I don’t have to keep my head down and just focus on one thing. I can take classes and do projects that align with my interests, not just my major … My first-year seminar was an art history class. Art has always been an interest of mine, and the class fueled that passion. The curriculum encourages you to take classes beyond your major.”
