“The Riddell Program is perfect for those interested in politics and public affairs who are looking to gain relevant skills and to take a deep dive into politics. The applied nature of the program was incredibly valuable and acted as a great transition between an undergraduate academic program and the realities of the professional sphere. Students are fortunate to gain valuable lessons from not just the courses and wonderful professors but also the knowledge crowdsourced from peers, guest speakers, and the practicum component. Students from all partisan backgrounds learn to think critically about partisanship, public policy, institutions, and politics as a whole.” – Liz Tuomi
