HBro Posted April 27, 2009 Share Posted April 27, 2009 I am a 22 year old female with a degree in International Relations, minors in History and Global Studies. I went to a large, generic state school in Tennessee. My GPA is 3.8, I've studied abroad in Denmark, and interned with the Tennessee Environmental Council and the State Department in Washington D.C. This summer I will live in Brazil for three months to gain proficiency in Portuguese. Afterward, I will teach English in South Korea for one year. I hope to enter into grad school immediately after returning to the U.S., meaning Fall 2010. As you can see, my background has prepared me to study IR in grad school. However, my specific interest resides in the EU, East Europe, and their current environment and energy policies. I am fascinated by the structure and function of the EU and how individual nation-states can work within an overarching structure to formulate trans-national environmental policies. Since I will be going to Brazil this summer, I aim to study Brazil's ethanol production and discover any benefits for the United States. Basically I am looking for programs in international relations that will allow me to specialize in energy and environmental policy. I have a limited science and math background so I don't see the more technical enviro programs accepting me, and I want to stick with IR as my overall concentration anyway. I am having some trouble finding these. My career goals are to work for some time as a researcher for the government or for an NGO. However, my ultimate goal is to become a professor, which I would do immediately if possible. Do you guys have any ideas? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
