Here's what our online students and alumni say
I’ve already had opportunities to apply the coursework to my areas of interest. For example, in the geospatial intelligence tradecraft course, we were given a real-world assignment with the directive to create a disaster mitigation plan for Hurricane Maria. This was a very relevant assignment to the moment in time in which it was assigned, as well as aligning with my own interests, and an opportunity to apply academia to the real world.
The Enrollment Management and Policy program at USC Rossier has helped me in every facet of my work. Working a full-time job in a different state while being in this program was daunting at first, but the accessibility and support of the faculty and my peers has made it such a fulfilling experience. I have learned so much about the higher education industry's best practices and methods of developing pathways to a more inclusive, diverse, and equitable environment on a school's campus. I truly appreciate this program for being rigorous, intentional, constantly enlightening, and composed of people who are 110% invested in the experience.
The program has allowed me to meet people from all over the U.S. and the world. I really enjoy having the flexibility to learn on a schedule which works best for me while also allowing me to work and balance other aspects of my life. My favorite class thus far has been Introduction to Global Health with Dr. Withers. I enjoyed learning about her career and research along with the many interesting topics within Global Health. I started creating miniatures in 2018 because it was difficult for me to find miniature magnets of Vietnamese food. I am from Hue (a smaller city than Saigon and Hanoi) so it was even harder to find items of food from my hometown. I figured I would save money and would be able to pick up another hobby if I tried creating them myself. I have always loved working with my hands so I was able to pick it up quickly. Creating miniature foods led me to where I am today creating other types of miniatures and dioramas. When I found the UN list of observed International Days, I felt that I could really make a difference.
The curriculum has prepared me to tackle some of the startup kinks that I now solve.
The Academy empowered me to dig deeper, ask big questions and to fully embrace blue sky thinking.
