"From the moment I visited Penn State's M&O department as an applicant, through course work, candidacy and my dissertation defense, my entire experience was first rate. Individually, the M&O faculty are each accomplished scholars in their respective fields; collectively, the breadth and depth of department is hard to match. Without a doubt, Penn State provided me with the tools and training necessary to launch a vibrant scholarly career."
