Kayo says, "I literally stumbled upon the GLS website when I was looking for graduate programs. I had considered many other programs but none had the appeal and vibrancy of this program. It turned out to be made to measure, an all encompassing experience which has a reputation for inclusiveness beyond the completion of the program. GLSers never really leave, they just keep coming back. The interdisciplinary program promoted the integration of my professional and personal experience, with an academic focus resulting in furthering my critical thinking skills."
