OK … I’m officially enrolled in my first semester courses. I’m going to try my hand at both carrying a full academic load and working full time. It won’t be the first time. Back when I was a bit younger, I carried a full undergraduate load and worked 50 hours per week. So how did that turn out? It was challenging. I wouldn’t recommend it if you can avoid it. However, I’m not working 50 hours any more – I work a 40 hour week, and I’m not carrying a 15-hour academic load – I’ve enrolled for 10 hours. Yes, there’s quite a difference between undergraduate and graduate work, but I’m willing to give it the “old college try”.
So here’s my first tranche of courses:
- PUBP 704 – Statistical Methods in Policy Analysis
- PUBP 730 – US National Policy System and Theory
- PUBP 801 – Macro Policy
