Shane Sanders (MAFLP French 2016) writes, "After a Fulbright where I trained English teachers and worked with American study abroad students in Senegal, I returned to the US to find a position in international education. My time at UD, and especially helping Ms. Anna Ogunnaike direct a winter session program in Martinique, put me on that path. I am now the Short-term Programs Coordinator in Susquehanna University's Office of Global Programs. I advise students on their study abroad options for the summer and winter breaks. At Susquehanna, every student is required to participate in a cross-cultural immersion program in order to graduate, so I work closely with students to help them find the best program for their personal, academic, and professional goals. I also work with faculty and staff as they plan and execute their programs, and I accompany students abroad for their immersion programs when needed. I also have the pleasure of teaching a course each term that prepares students for their cross-cultural immersion experiences in all corners of the world."
Dean Woodrow (Honors BA International Relations, German minor 2019) has been accepted into a MA History program in International War Studies. He will spend one year at the Universität Potsdam and one year at University College Dublin. The program focuses on the context, development, and resolutions of violent conflicts in the twentieth century. It also covers political violence, and violence as it relates to society. Dean's goal is to better understand, prevent, and resolve violent conflict in the future. He adds, " I hope to use the degree to help develop conflict-prevention policy either with organizations like the EU or UN, or with private think tanks or consulting firms."
