Profile: Emma Bunkley
Emma Bunkley
Emma graduated Magna Cum Laude from NAU in 2007 with a BA in International Affairs.  She  also received the Outstanding Senior in Political Science award from the College of Social and Behavioral Sciences in 2007. This past May, Emma graduated from the New School for Social Research with an MA in Political Science. She is currently working to implement the national healthcare reform bill for the State of New Mexico. Thinking back on her education at NAU, Emma had this to say: "NAU is a unique and diverse educational environment. International Affairs provided an interdisciplinary approach to studying both political science and the human figures behind the politics. Most influential in my educational development were Dr. Joel Olson and Dr. Gretchen Gee. The professors at NAU had a real interest in my growth as a student, always listening to my ideas and challenging me to push myself in my thinking."
