Something special about your TC experience: At TC, I have found the convergence of two aspects that in my opinion are the most important components of a learning process: the quality of its professors and students. TC’s faculty members are studying education policies in a truly interdisciplinary manner. In addition, TC’s location and centers bring along with them, important benefits!
