Matt Wilhelm '16G was considering ways he might be able to take the next step in his career. With a young family and a full-time job, pursuing a graduate degree posed a time management dilemma.

Fortunately, the Carsey School of Public Policy’s Master of Public Administration is tailored for working professionals. This UNH program, based in Manchester, offers evening and online classes as well as electives in Durham, allowing students to complete their degree at the pace that works for them.

Wilhelm found that he could make progress on his degree without putting his life on hold. Now, with a master’s degree in hand and a recent election to the New Hampshire Legislature, Wilhelm is well-poised to pursue his goals of making New Hampshire a better place to live.
