“While at Georgetown, I intend to strengthen my professional network while applying my language training in Korean and Spanish. Having worked with both immigrant and refugee populations domestic and abroad, my main goal is to enter the foreign service and aid North Korean refugees in their resettlement process in the United States and in South Korea.” -Jason Bartlett, MASIA ’19

Daniel Aum, MASIA '20

In the MASIA program, I hope to gain a proper theoretical framework underlying international relations and US foreign policy towards Asia, learn from Georgetown’s elite cohort of scholar-practitioners on how to apply that theory to practice, and enjoy learning alongside motivated colleagues who have unique passions and perspectives to bear.

I chose MASIA to gain an in-depth theoretical understanding of Asia’s political economy, especially in regards to China’s strategic interests in the Asia Pacific region, with the goal that I can then leverage this into a practical future in policy development.

George Bradshaw, MASIA '20

Through the MASIA program, I intend to strengthen my theoretical and practical understanding of political and social structures to look at how demand for and supply of energy and natural resources shapes Asian communities. I want to embed this understanding within a broader appreciation of Asian security and through this be in a position to understand the resource conflicts of the future.

“I have always had an affinity for global geopolitics, and the East Asian region has been of particular interest to me. At Georgetown, I hope to enhance my knowledge and understanding of East Asian cultures, societies, and politics, as well as my command of Mandarin Chinese to prepare for a career as a political analyst.”

At MASIA, I would like to improve my Chinese language abilities and learn about the political and economic climate of China in depth. I am fascinated by China’s rapid development and the consequent shifts in society, and hope to use my MASIA education to actively observe how China develops over the next 50 years.
