The professors at PNW have always set clear expectations and shared information enthusiastically and engagingly. Discussion was not only had, but encouraged. Overall, the professors at PNW provided an experience that encouraged engagement and helped build connections.
My degree has given me a solid foundation upon which I have built a stable career in the public workforce system and has enabled me to excel as I pursue my Juris Doctorate in law school. The breadth and depth of my philosophical education has helped me find success in areas of significant expertise even beyond my colleagues who specialized in that area.
My learning opportunities afforded to me in PNW's kind and welcoming environment have carried me well through graduate school, all the way to finishing my dissertation, acquiring a Ph.D. in Philosophy and becoming an assistant professor.
Because of the class sizes, I am on a first name basis with all of my professors...They’re always asking about my future plans and how they can help me reach my goals."
