I started at the University of Georgia in 2011 to get a bachelor’s degree in political science and a second bachelor’s degree in international affairs. During my undergraduate program, I served on a US Senate Campaign as the Deputy Grassroots Director and intern coordinator. I was lucky enough to be selected for a student program with the Center for International Trade & Security, which conducts outreach programs among government and industry officials from around the globe to discourage proliferation of nuclear, chemical, biological, and conventional weapons as well as their dual-use components. After graduating in December 2014, I began work for the European Parliament in Liaison Office with US Congress in DC and then transferred to Brussels Spring 2015 to work for the European Parliament’s Policy Department for Economic and Scientific Policies.

Choosing Josef Korbel for the next step in my career came easily once I did my research. The school offers their full array of resources to students—from gym membership and the New York Times subscription to the Office of Career and Professional Development, study abroad programs, and degree certificates across several fields. Korbel is a friendly school with endless opportunities to get involved and to take your skillset to the next level. The professors are truly experts in their field and are enthusiastic about the learning community.
