MA International Security, Latin America Regional Specialization, Josef Korbel School of International Studies, expected graduation Spring 2018
Jeremy studied Political Science and History at Villanova University to gain an understanding of how current international politics relate to historical colonial engagements. Although primarily interested in political climates of Latin America, Jeremy’s studies include African, European, and Russian politics and history. While studying abroad in Prague, Czech Republic, Jeremy’s research led him to interests in 20th century former soviet territories and the fall of the Soviet Union. In Summer 2017, Jeremy interned with the United States Department of State in the United States Embassy in Guatemala City, Guatemala.
After interning with the Political/Economic Section of the embassy, Jeremy hopes to use his experience to find a career within the United States government in a field related to Latin American immigration. Born the son of a Peruvian immigrant, Jeremy hopes to work toward reforming current United States-Latin American immigration policy to better address current issues at the Southwest Border. Jeremy’s extensive travel throughout Latin America resulted in a passion for bettering United States foreign relations with Latin American peoples and governments.
