Why I Chose MAGES: I want to develop more of an expertise on the current cultural and political environment in Europe as it relates to international security and transatlantic relations. I hope to take full advantage of the MAGES program’s world class education in addition to all the opportunities available at Georgetown and around Washington D.C.!

Why I Chose MAGES: MAGES appeals to me both academically and socially. First, the program is unique in that it enables me to pursue my passion for German Studies from a political perspective instead of a strictly literary one. Second, MAGES is known for building close connections throughout the course of the program that translate into lifelong friends as well as professional contacts.
