Neha Sheth, MSSP’13

  • Reporter/Producer WLNS-TV6

“I am so glad I decided to pursue the MSSP program at the University of Pennsylvania’s School of Social Policy & Practice. The program was appealing to me because it focused on the ‘social’ aspect of policy analysis, and was completely unique from other public policy programs. The MSSP program also gave me the flexibility to study pertinent social issues in health, welfare and education reform while taking elective courses in communications, public speaking and media policy. It was this combination of course work that eventually led me to pursue a career in television news.

“As a reporter and producer for WLNS-TV, I am well-prepared to cover national and local social issues affecting our communities, including the economic outlook in mid-Michigan, the Flint water crisis, as well as local and national elections. Essentially, the MSSP program gave me the ability to mold my own educational experience to fit the career I’ve always dreamed of pursuing: television news.”
