Luke is a first-year MSFS graduate student, concentrating in Global Politics and Security. He is currently studying East Asian foreign and economic policy. Prior to studying at Georgetown, he was an English teacher living near Tokyo, Japan for three-and-a-half years. He holds a Bachelor of Arts in History and Japanese from the University of Wisconsin–Madison. He speaks fluent Japanese.
This semester, Luke is interning at the U.S. State Department Bureau of East Asian and Pacific Affairs. After graduation, he hopes to work full time in the Foreign Service as a Political Affairs Officer.
"I chose MSFS because I wanted a world-class education that mixed academic rigor with real-world skills taught by current practitioners in international affairs. The D.C. location also provided many opportunities to work in the center of U.S. policy and build connections for my future. I want to enter the U.S. Foreign Service after graduation, and MSFS is the best international affairs program for my goals and aspirations.”
