  • 2nd Year
  • MA International Administration
  • Humanitarian Assistance Certificate

My name is Caroline Haas, and I am in my second year at the Josef Korbel School of International Studies. My degree will be in International Administration and I'm also working toward the Humanitarian Assistance certificate. My graduate studies will hopefully lead me to a career with an international NGO or governmental organization assisting in relief in conflict affected regions. A primary factor for choosing the Josef Korbel School was the attention given to skills based coursework, in addition to the amazing programs and lectures the school offers both inside and outside of the traditional classroom. I felt that the International Administration program was the best fit with my previous experiences and skillsets, and would allow me build my own program to tailor to my interests and my future career goals.

Prior to starting at the University of Denver, I spent the past several years working in both the nonprofit and private sector. I was an executive assistant at a nonprofit, where I solidified my desire to work in a humanitarian context. Additionally, I spent several years working as a manager in the restaurant industry. My undergraduate was in Classics at Beloit College in Beloit, Wisconsin. I also received my post-baccalaureate certificate in Latin and Ancient Greek from the University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill, North Carolina.
