Callie Brown, SIS/MA ’17
I chose to attend SIS because of its emphasis on practical experience.
I wanted a master’s degree that could help advance my career and inform my work, so SIS’s focus on both the practical and theoretical was a perfect fit. A crucial element of my education was the SIS Practicum, during which I researched rising global social conflicts related to increased migration and provided recommendations to an NGO based on that research. It also proved to be a strong talking point when interviewing with potential employers. My experience at SIS wasn’t just about the degree, it was also about the connections, which have helped me get a job and continue to be a part of my professional and personal life.
