This summer, I have been accepted to do foreign policy research for the Institute of World Politics. I was placed here through the Koch Summer Fellow Program, and I am looking forward to joining some of the most brilliant minds in libertarianism for the duration of the summer.
Following my internship, I will head out to the University of Chicago for my master’s degree in international relations. UChicago’s CIR program (or Committee on International Relations) has been revered as a hub for international relations theory.
The oldest IR graduate program in the United States, the Committee on International Relations focuses on the more intellectual side of international affairs. Programs are capped by a rigorous M.A. thesis, and courses are focused on producing “intellectual leaders” in the field. —Foreign Policy Magazine
I am amazed and honored that I have the chance to study under some of the best known IR theorists in the world next year.
All that said, I will definitely miss Atlanta. Working at the Agnes Scott Center for Writing and Speaking has been one of the greatest opportunities and challenges of my life to date. The relationships that I’ve made here are akin to family, and while I know we will all stay in touch, it is still hard to say goodbye. I’m looking forward to great things—come visit me in DC/Chicago before I start traveling the world!
