SEE WHAT ALUMNI ARE SAYING

"This program gave me the opportunity to live, study, and work in the most important city in the U.S. for international relations and foreign policy issues. I got to learn first-hand what working in this field looks like through my internship, the site visits and guest lectures, and now I know that it's definitely the career path I want to pursue."
