What’s one piece of advice a current student would share with a prospective student? Want the answers to these questions?  Then check out our 2012 Korbel Perspective videos.

Meet Mike Smith, an MA candidate in the International Human Rights program with a certificate in Humanitarian Assistance. Mike is a Peace Corps Fellow, having served in Panama from 2009-2011.
