Why I Chose MAGES: I was interested in studying international relations, and I find Europe to be a fascinating part of the world. I very much enjoy European languages, cultures, and history.

Why I Chose MAGES: After studying abroad in Madrid at the time of the 2017 Barcelona attacks and the Catalonian independence movement, I realized that I wanted to further my study of international politics and security in a program that focuses on Europe so that I could one day help preserve political and economic stability in the region. I chose MAGES because it allows me to conduct more research on such topics while advancing my foreign language skills and cross-cultural awareness.

Why I Chose MAGES: The interdisciplinary curriculum provides a comprehensive look at Europe, but provides plenty of flexibility to pursue specific interests. The community and network of MAGES and SFS are top notch!

Why I Chose MAGES: With its specific European focus and many Europe experts from a variety of different fields, MAGES was the program that I had always wanted that wasn’t available to me in undergrad.

Why I Chose MAGES: I’ve always focused my studies around Europe. The EU provides a living model for supranational government that you can’t find anywhere else, so the chance to focus on that in an environment like Georgetown was too good to pass up.
