    I particularly liked the length of the course which was 15months. As I was clear i did not want to pursue research and the course I took was professional course which was industry oriented.

    Course Curriculum :

    I think the course was not that detailed and instead was more industry oriented which I think it helped me a lot as I wanted to be at par with the industry standards in tech.

    I wanted to pursue my career in the field related to ecology, so I took up this course at the University of California. I also had plans of getting settled abroad. I had applied in 4 universities and had secured a GPA of 8.8 at high-school. Being the youngest member of the prestigious Association of American universities, known for academic achievements, premier research, and innovation, I wanted to take up my education at this university. The admission process was quite simple though the official website(online) along with an application fee of $80.

    Course Curriculum :

    The course prepared me for a wide variety of occupations, with explicit interdisciplinary training and a broad perspective. It included social, legal, environmental, behavioral sciences with a multi-faceted approach. The curriculum includes social psychology, environmental analysis, and design, naturalistic field research, and research design.
