Student Name: Melissa Salgado
Program: Master's of Arts in Political Science
Undergraduate Institution: UT Tyler
As an undergraduate political science student at UT Tyler, I came across courses being taught by wonderful professors who always made lectures interesting and engaging. This is one of the main reasons I chose to continue my education at UT Tyler as a graduate student.
The professors of the department were always willing to help students as much as they can when it comes to coursework, which created an inviting environment where I did not feel afraid to approach them and ask questions. The department offers incredible opportunities for students such as the Model United Nations Program. With Model UN my skills in researching, networking, and public speaking have grown into skills that I know will be beneficial in the future.
Not only has the experience taught me great things, but it has also given me the opportunity to travel to the Czech Republic, Japan, and New York City to attend Model United Nations Conferences. Some of the best features of UT Tyler are the wonderful professors, a department chair who is always willing to help students, and great staff in the political science department.
