Jessica Nguyen-Ventura knows firsthand what it’s like to be a minority student, to be tagged as unlikely to succeed.

Earning a Master of Public Policy in the College of Liberal Arts developed her abilities to collect, analyze and interpret information, then act on it.

Students can now earn a Master of Public Policy degree online through Oregon State Ecampus.
