This session features Professor Jonathan Hanson, chair of the master's program committee; Professor Brian Jacob, co-director of the Youth Policy Lab; Professor Shobita Parthasarathy, director of the Science, Technology, and Public Policy program; and Jennifer Niggemeier, director of Graduate Career Services & Alumni Relations.
