“It’s important that civilians have trust that the military as a profession is conducting itself in an appropriate manner. I chose this master’s program to make myself a better professional soldier and hopefully help address and advise on the current and future challenges for the military.”
“Studying military ethics is not only a way to satisfy my intellectual curiosities, but, more importantly, it provides a beautiful opportunity to enact positive change. I love being able to do philosophy in an intentional way, producing scholarship with the goal of improving and supporting the experiences of all military personnel. ”
"Choosing to pursue military ethics along with law has allowed me to combine my academic interest in conflicts and my passion for public service in a new way. Military ethics asks people to critically look at military service in a way that other disciplines do not so we, as academics, can strive to better the military profession. By combining both degrees, I can strive to help servicemen and civilians regardless of where my career takes me."
