Sabrina van der Linden (Entered fall 2014)
In 2013 I moved to the US from the Netherlands, where I had completed a Bachelor’s Degree in Law and a Master’s Degree in Constitutional and Administrative Law at the University of Leiden. I also studied for a year at the University of Oxford in the United Kingdom, where I earned a Diploma in Legal Studies. After moving to the United States, I wanted to broaden my academic horizons by studying political science. CSULB was the perfect place to accomplish this goal. I started the MA program in the Fall of 2014. The seminars are small and the professors are very approachable outside of class. I really appreciate their input on my professional advancement as well as the flexibility of the program, which allows me to focus on interesting topics, like the political context of contemporary legal issues. I enjoy research and I aspire to pursue this passion with a career in academia.
