As an MMG major you will be prepared for whatever you are interested in doing after college and will have a great time in the process. While the classes are great, what makes MMG so special is the community of faculty, staff, and students. The people involved in this program are truly amazing and have made my experience with MMG phenomenal. Thinking back to my first time walking into Dr. Johnson’s office, I never could have imagined the experience I was setting myself up for. I have learned more than I could have imagined, been able to adjust my schedule to fit in courses I really wanted to take, around a semester studying abroad, and have had a great time in the process. From the courses to the people to the research to all of the other opportunities, MMG has been the perfect place for me to be for the past 4 years and I am very grateful to have been a part of the department for my time here.
