Why USF?

I chose USF because each professor is actively engaged in the field of study you're pursuing. After doing extensive research on graduate schools in the Bay Area, it was clear that USF has a clear and strategic investment in each and every student.

What has been the highlight of your program so far?

The highlight of my program so far has been classroom design and assignments that are rooted in human rights-based approaches. The professors in HRE really prioritize a horizontal approach to classroom instruction with a holistic approach to classroom dialogue. I remember when I first noticed that classes were 4 hours long; it took me by surprise. After the first few class meetings, I wish the class was longer because our conversations are so radical, solution-based, and informative.

What advice do you have for prospective students?

The professors are so helpful in making sure you're successful in the program. If you need any help with understanding course material or help with big assignments your professors are here to help!
