“Completely changing my major from English literature to Environmental Policy was not an easy thing. iMEP program helped me get into this field with ultra-practical courses. In the previous year, I learned how environmental problems intertwined with social, political and economic factors, which further influence policymaking. iMEP program also provided unparalleled resources including career opportunities and research projects.  Choosing iMEP and becoming one of the environmental practitioner were the best decision I have ever made in my life.”

When I look back at my previous experiences, both personal and professional, I realize they have all led up to the iMEP program. If I were to create a master’s program for myself, it would look something like this. I’ve always had a desire to study in China and a deep passion for solving environmental problems. The iMEP program provides the community and resources that I need to make my goals a reality, and I’m very grateful to be part of this tight-knit group.

“I never imagined I would become an environmental master candidate before my hometown was hit by a great haze in 2016. After been unable to see the roof of my neighbors for one whole week, I decided I shall apply for an environmental policy program with Chinese focus. The iMEP program is exactly what I need with its Duke quality graduate education and special interest in Chinese problems.  ”
