Q & A with Neal McMillin

What led you to pursue a Master of Marine Affairs?

Why did you choose UW’s SMEA for graduate school?
In a word, Seattle. Besides the locale, I knew I could pursue policy investigations on cutting-edge renewable energy projects thanks to UW’s standing as a world-class environmental research center and SMEA’s human dimensions focus.
