“My favorite professor is Kathy Simpson from the Department of Kinesiology. I met her my first year during a mentor program created by the Office of Multicultural Services and Programs. After we met, I starting working in the biomechanics lab with her research team. Her mentorship has greatly contributed to my college success so far and I was lucky enough to take her biomechanics course before she retired this past year.”

''The one UGA experience I will always remember will be my experience in Ethiopia. My yearlong adventures lent me a new perspective on life and on the world in general. My experience abroad also helped solidify my professional and personal goals. I now know that I want to dedicate my life to public service as an agent for change. I will forever be indebted to UGA, the Honors program, and the National Security Education Program for facilitating and supporting this experience.''

''My research focuses on foreign policy decision-making, which is increasingly interdisciplinary...there is always something new that we can learn. But more fundamentally, foreign policy is simply important. If you think about contemporary global problems—nuclear proliferation, global warming, political instability and violence, etc.—it’s hard for me to imagine a more important and dynamic field of inquiry. If such problems are to be resolved, it will be through effective foreign policy.''
Students may choose from several areas of emphasis including:
Students concentrate on a specific country or region of the world, gaining a working knowledge of the language as well as an understanding of the area’s environmental, social, political, and cultural issues. Courses include international agriculture, economic development, international marketing, fighting hunger, crop & soil science, anthropology, geography, and others; careful planning allows most students to qualify for the certificate by taking coursework as general electives while meeting degree requirements. An internship abroad supplements student learning.
