After graduation, I will be working at a digital marketing firm in Santa Monica. I plan on working for a few years to establish a career in marketing, with the long-term goal of attending graduate school for a Masters in Business Administration. However, Global Studies has also ignited my passion for Geography and French and Francophone Studies, and I may alternatively pursue a doctoral degree in either field.
Advice for Current International Institute IDP Students
Travel, expand your worldview, and examine different cultures. The Global Studies Travel Study program in Paris was one of the most memorable parts of my time at UCLA. Also, writing a senior thesis was by far the most challenging and rewarding academic accomplishment of my collegiate career. I believe that the requirements unique to Global Studies (Travel Study, foreign language proficiency, and the thesis) are invaluable experiences that make the IDP more interesting and enriching.
