As a Missouri State student, Amanda Klimek studied away to India and completed an internship in the United Kingdom. She graduated in 2013 with a global studies degree and Spanish minor. She is currently pursuing a master’s in public and international affairs at one of the nation’s leading policy schools. Her goal is to work with an organization like the European Union to help come up with foreign policy solutions.
“I can say with full confidence that I would not be in this master’s program without both my background in study away and my proficiency in a second language. And MSU’s public affairs mission not only makes graduates competitive on a nationwide and global scale, but it fosters the knowledge base and emotional intelligence that you need to be effective and make a difference wherever you end up.”
