Sincai Pader Vue MPH'19

After my undergrad, I was still trying to find my niche when I got my hands on a St. Kate’s catalog. At the time, it was one of only two schools offering an MPH program [in Minnesota]. I fell in love with its global health focus. It really struck me as the place we’re moving to as a more connected world.

The faculty worked directly with each student, and there was the freedom to explore and dive into topics of interest. Its relatively small size made it very manageable. I felt like I knew everybody, and it was easy to build friendships. I was surprised—happily!—by the practicum, because you’re able to apply what you’re learning to real life settings.

I truly enjoyed my graduate experience and I rave about it with colleagues. I’m a strong advocate of the global health approach. Covid has shown us a lot. We rarely think about how an outbreak in a country far away can impact us. But we’re a lot more connected than we think we are.
