Fall 2020 Update

The George Washington University recently announced the university's approach to reopening.  With all the considerations to keep our community safe, the decision has been made to hold all undergraduate courses online for the fall semester, with limited exceptions. And most graduate programs will be conducted online, with certain programs holding discipline-specific in-person classes. Please find more details here - GW's Fall 2020 Update

Information on the Global Communications Master's program >

What is special about the George Washington University, in particular the Global Communication master's program, is how it merges theory with practice. In my Public Diplomacy class, we did everything a public diplomacy practitioner would do including writing speeches, press simulations, and developing a public diplomacy strategy for our "embassy".

After graduation, I will be joining the U.S. Foreign Service as a Public Diplomacy Officer.  I am excited to explain U.S. history, cultures, and values to foreign audiences and promote educational and cultural exchange abroad.
