On choosing the MATA

Although I had not been to the US before enrolling at Fletcher, I was always fascinated by America’s culture and legal/political system. The MATA program offers the opportunity to not only study transatlantic relations but to experience them, spending one year on each side of the Atlantic. I also liked the possibility of ending my degree with an internship, allowing me to smoothly transition from university to working life. The two year-program is flexible in its requirements and offered the opportunity to explore a variety of topics. I was trying to complement my law degree with a foundation in international relations; the MATA was the perfect fit.

Building a global perspective 

Before coming to Fletcher, I knew that academic life would be varied and the student community diverse. What surprised me, however, is the sheer volume of different background and career paths are represented at Fletcher, and the interesting conversations to be had as soon as you come to campus. These discussions, both in class and off campus, have broadened my perspective on many issues and will continue to do so. I am only at Fletcher for one semester as part of my MATA program – I already wish I had more time to take advantage of the opportunities available to me here on campus.
