Why I Chose MAGES: When I was a senior, I had no idea what I wanted to do after graduation. My German professor suggested that I find a career that could reflect my experience as a “global citizen” in China, America and Germany. I knew I would need more time to prepare for that career, so I started to apply to graduate schools and found the MAGES program at Georgetown. The MAGES program gives me not only the knowledge about Germany and Europe, but also the information I need to design my career path. Besides, Georgetown and D.C have so much to offer, so I am excited about this program.
