Jennifer Catalan, Bachelor of Arts in Political Science and International Studies at DePaul University
The education I am now receiving will allow me to be a well-rounded person who can engage in our national and international community, with an approach that considers patterns of conflict and cooperation that have taken a part in shaping the relationships between nations. I would like to gain a better perspective on the actions and policies that affect us, at home, as well as around the world… Upon graduation I plan on enrolling in law school to pursue a degree in international law. Pursuing a law degree has always been a dream of mine.
