Why did you choose the MS Health Communication Program at Northwestern University?
I chose the MSHC program because I could enter the workforce and pursue a post-professional degree at the same time! I really liked the Saturday class schedule and the curriculum complimented or built upon my previous education.
What are your career goals?
I am looking to take my experience in the clinical setting and eventually transition into a job in health policy or health administration.
What is your favorite part of the program so far?
I love how I can apply the materials I learn in class on Saturday to my job on Monday. It has helped me gain insight into different aspects of healthcare that I had not been exposed to before.
Any tips on balancing school, work, and life?
It’s completely doable! A year of hard work and sacrifices is worth the benefits that this program has to offer.
