          • Testimony
            1979-1983, BA in International Relations

            Great school!I really appreciated that the school allowed me to design and select the course that would enable me to obtain a degree in International Relations. The degree did not exist at the time so I was the only one in the class that graduated with that degree. The best part was being able to take the courses that i was interested in and having some specific one on one classes. I went on to graduate school in Japan due to a professor's recommendation. I have had my career due to my start at St.Mary's!

            Proud to be an AlumI fell in love with St. Mary's the moment I stepped on campus. At the time, they were recruiting my brother to attend, but I am the one who ended up enrolling. The friends I met while there, I still have today - almost 12 years later. It's a great place to learn and take advantage of opportunities in a small-setting. Plus you're close to everything in the Bay Area!
