The Global Affairs Program has a busy week planned with an open house on Wednesday, Feb. 11, from 3 to 5 p.m. in the Johnson Center, third floor West Lounge, and an International Jobs Panel on Tuesday, Feb. 17, from 5 to 7 p.m. in the Johnson Center, Assembly Room C.

The open house will provide attendees the opportunity to learn more about the major and meet Global Affairs faculty members, current students, and other interested students. Provost Peter Stearns will provide a welcome introduction and Professor Johanna Bockman will outline the major. Faculty members teaching in the program will present their courses. Afterwards, participants can ask questions and talk one-on-one with faculty and students. Beverages and cookies will be provided.

For those interested in international employment, the jobs panel–representing the U.S. Department of State, the U.S. Department of Commerce, the National Democratic Institute, the World Wildlife Fund, the Central Intelligence Agency, Peace Corps, World Vision, and Booz Allen Hamilton–will share knowledge of jobs in international organizations and how to obtain these positions. The event is cosponsored by the Public and International Affairs Department, the School of Public Policy, and University Career Services.
