Student stories: Louisa Bochner

Master of National Security Policy graduate Louisa Bochner was the inaugural recipient of the Office of National Intelligence and National Security College Scholarship for Women. Louisa provides some insight and words of advice for those considering studying national security policy.

“The National Security College opened my eyes to new opportunities. I had no idea about the breadth and scope of national security problems before I started my degree.

If you’re interested in making policy on climate change, technology, energy, cyber security, or foreign interference, all on the backdrop of a rapidly changing international playing field, then this is the degree for you.”
