Congratulations to Michael Price, UWT’s first student to graduate with a major in our new Economics and Policy Analysis degree. Michael was recently accepted into the University of Washington’s Daniel J. Evans School of Public Policy and Governance, where this fall he will begin its Master of Public Administration (MPA) program. The Evans School is ranked as one of the top graduate MPA programs in the nation.
Michael grew up spending time between New Jersey and South Florida, but has found his home in Washington state. In returning to college, he dreamed of gaining the skills to allow him to contribute to solving social problems. For this reason, he was drawn to UWT’s new Economics and Policy Analysis program, which just winter quarter began accepting students. (See this interview with Michael.)
“Because of my success in the EPA major, I wholeheartedly recommend this major for any students interested in either Economics or Policy, as they go hand in hand,” commented Michael after learning of his admission to the Evans School. “The faculty here at UWT has supported me along the way. I’m excited to begin this new stage of my academic career.” So are we Michael. Best wishes!
