MA in Global Affairs

Maggie Zargarpur, 2021

What are your plans after graduating from the Global Affairs MA program?

I plan on continuing my professional development through employer training, self-study, and virtual networking. I aspire to work in bridging the gap between technologists and policymakers.

Is there a course, text, or assignment in particular that you will take with you on your alumni life?

GLOA 605 truly left me with an invaluable skillset and knowledge of research I would not have had otherwise. It is 100% a class you look back on and are grateful you took.

Please describe one memory or highlight of your time in the program.

Definitely studying abroad in Cuba.

What would be your advice to new alumni, regardless of whether they are already in established careers or are in search of a job?

Be resourceful. Explore professional development through whatever means excites you. If you are always learning, you are always moving forward.
