Germanic studies - BA (2010)

Friederike is currently pursuing a Master's degree in European Affairs and International Business Diplomacy at Georgetown University's Edmund A. Walsh School of Foreign Service in Washington, D.C. Most recently, she worked in the Executive Office of the German Marshall Fund, an organization that contributes to policy research and analysis on transatlantic issues. She says she's continuing to build on the strong educational foundation she received from the Germanic and Slavic studies department at UVic and hopes to advise on transatlantic issues and promote cultural exchange, education and security cooperation in the future.

I am deeply grateful to the Germanic and Slavic Studies department for the many opportunities it afforded me following graduation. Aside from honing my research and writing skills, the support of the close-knit department buoyed my confidence and encouraged me to pursue my personal academic interests. From my very first semester, it was apparent that the instructors were invested in the success and well-being of their students.
