Why did you enroll in the Multicultural Education MA program?
I enrolled in the Master of Arts in Multicultural Education at California State University, Sacramento because I was interested in a program that was unique and a program that focused on the diversity of students in our education system. I researched the faculty and really liked the diversity among them and their areas of expertise. Their passion for education was transparent which I really appreciated.
How has the MA in Multicultural Education impacted and/or shaped your professional/personal goals?
The Master of Arts in Multicultural Education has given me different lenses to look through. It has showed me to be a critical thinker and has taught me that through education one can be an agent of change. This program has planted the Ph.D. seed and in the future I would like to pursue a doctorate degree.
