Afghan Women to Pursue Master's Degrees at Center for Public Policy and Administration

Coming up this fall the Center for Public Policy and Administration (CPPA), part of the College of Social and Behavioral Sciences at UMass Amherst, will be welcoming three Afghan women into its master's degree program. And in two years when they graduate, Arezo Kohistani, Nadima Sahar and Mahbuba Babrakzai will not only move on to public service careers in Afghanistan but they also will be part of a very rare group: Afghan women who hold graduate degrees and aim to assume leadership roles in their country's government.
