Degree Title: 
Masters in Political Science with International Development Studies

I am a Master student in the collaborative Master's program in Political Science and International Development Studies. My research is interested in the relationship between food security and foreign direct investment in the Global South (Central Africa). My experience in the program so far has been extremely insightful, rewarding and unique. I really enjoy the interdisciplinary nature of the program, which allows for a rich opportunity and conceptual framework into pressing issues in international development. The seminars provide a collaborative and rich framework for learning between students and professor. Outside seminars, I really enjoy the Speaker Series Lectures, which connected students with different perspectives on issues in international development. Upon completion of my studies at Guelph, I would like to pursue a career with a Non-Profit Organization, or governmental agencies, and potentially pursue a PhD degree to expand the focus of my current research.
