Brittny Parsells

Class of 2010
Major/Minor: International Studies, Near Eastern Concentration

Brittny wrote her senior thesis on U.S. Public Diplomacy in the Middle East.

I really enjoyed the IS major because of its interdisciplinary approach and wide range of opportunities it has provided me (study abroad, Model UN, summer internships, etc). I love to travel to new places, especially in the Middle East.

Campus Involvement
  • Languages: Egyptian Arabic and Spanish
  • Study Abroad: Fall 2008, Egypt at AUC; Spring 2009 in Morocco at Al Akhawayn
  • Internship: Summer 2008, Advocacy Intern at the National Peace Corps Association in D.C.

Q & A

Future plans? Hopefully working in DC at an international educational or cultural-exchange organization
