Congrats to an alum!
Amelia Dulee-Kinsolving, Global Studies and Spanish major from WWC (class of 2006), was accepted to Mundus MAPP, also known as the Erasmus Mundus Master's in Public Policy. This is a full scholarship, double Master's degree program for non-EU citizens to study in Europe and is granted by the European Commission. Amelia will be studying a Master's degree in Public Policy and Administration for her first year at the University of York in the UK. Her second year will be spent in Barcelona at IBEI studying International Relations. Through this double Master's degree program, Amelia will study policy making at the local, national, and global level. This will allow Amelia to not only analyze existing political and bureaucratic structures, but also to analyze the diverse and often complex cultural influences that influence policy making. In addition to her two years spent studying at the University of York and IBEI, Amelia will be required to participate in an internship at a relevant policy institution and will participate in an annual summer school with fellow Mundus MAPP scholars which is taught by professors from throughout Europe.
This all follows her two-year stint in the Peace Corps, where she is wrapping up her work in Peru. Way to go Amelia!
