I entered the PHRE degree program because of interest in the subject matter rather than having a firm grasp on what I wanted to be when I grow up. Through a robust curriculum and tremendous faculty, I learned skills that have helped me thrive throughout my career. My PHRE degree provided me with skills in research, logic and argumentation. Perhaps most importantly, I learned how backgrounds and ideas influence belief and how to communicate with diverse groups by being mindful of others, a skill that is important in any career field.
