After earning a master's degree, we caught up with this busy industrial hygienist to get her feedback about the program. Here's what Pearl had to say. 

What's been your experience in the program?

"As a full time industrial hygienist, it is challenging to balance both work and school. The part-time online program provides a lot of flexibility with course schedules, lectures, and classwork. The summer and winter institutes allow for the on-campus experience of attending class in person and meeting fellow classmates who are also full time professionals and part-time students!"

What's your opinion of the program's faculty?

"The faculty members are easy to interact with and are absolute experts in their field. I appreciate the smaller class sizes that allow for more in-depth discussions with the course instructors."

How was your interaction with other students in the program?

"This master's program has allowed me to meet full time professionals in the same field who are equally devoted to learning and being the best in their field. It's a really great way to network - you have the opportunity to discuss and learn from each other's past experiences."

Where are you now? 

"I'm an HES Professional at the Marathon Petroleum Los Angeles Refinery."
