International Affairs Graduate Student “Capitalizes” on Opportunities in U.S. and Europe.

Are you interested in international relations, like SPIA graduate student Dawn Cutler?

Dawn’s personal passion for refugee concerns was stimulated by SPIA and the dual masters program, which opened her eyes to the human toll and political complexity of the global refugee crisis. She traveled through six countries in Europe last summer during the height of the crisis, witnessing the attitudes and actions of individuals, media and government throughout the region. She subsequently completed a course on the topic while a student at the University of Kent, and interned at the U.S. Committee for Refugees and Immigrants upon her return to the States. With one master’s degree down and one to go, she aspires to work in a federal or international agency in the human rights sector. Applying professional degrees from European as well as American universities to her career, she will be uniquely suited to apply leverage expertise from conflict security to global governance.
