国际关系专业 留学申请文书

来源:作者:

I must have raised a few eyebrows back in sixth grade when I chose Peter Jennings as my subject for a portrait. A few of my elementary school classmates certainly found it strange that my favorite television program was “20/20.” Ever since I was a young child, I have had a passion for current events and world politics. As a college undergraduate, I chose to major in political science. While at school, I also discovered a powerful love of foreign languages and cultures. The desire to incorporate all of my academic interests has convinced me to pursue a graduate degree in international relations.

My undergraduate education included a semester working as an intern at the French Embassy in Washington, D.C. At first, the experience was nerve-racking. Everybody spoke very quickly, and I began to doubt my French skills. I was constantly wondering whether I had heard somebody correctly or said what I had meant to. Worst of all, it seemed that all of the other interns spoke in perfect, fluent French. I remember leaving at the end of my first day, relieved that I had survived and unsure about what I had gotten myself into. Despite a few difficult days at the outset, however, I now consider my internship to be one of my most valuable educational experiences.

When I first started my internship, I was not sure exactly why I had taken the job. Certainly, it would look nice on a resume and make a good reference, but I didn’t think that I would ever need to know that much about France. Yet although I did learn a great deal about the role of the diplomatic community and the national interests of France, I learned even more about myself. The experience gave me a solid link between my academic interests and my professional future. I managed to set long-term goals for the internship and succeeded in achieving them.

Within the first week, I knew that I wanted to do more than just answer the telephones and reply to mail -- the usual duties of an intern. Gradually I began to take on more responsibilities, and I eventually became a regular contributor to News from France, the embassy’s newsletter. Also, I worked with the director of the press and the communication office on special projects. Through these experiences I learned much about the professionalism and dedication it takes to work in a place where everyone has different views and opinions but all work towards a common goal. At the end of my internship, I had a better understanding of the opportunities available to me and a greater enthusiasm for a career in international relations.

The time that I spent at the French embassy shaped my academic and professional goals. I now believe that a career in international relations will place me in a field that is both challenging and exciting. There are no easy answers to many of the problems that arise between nations, but it will be fulfilling to work towards new solutions. Combined with my interests and experiences, I believe that a graduate degree in international relations will prepare me extremely well to pursue my professional goals. I hope to achieve a better understanding of the problems facing the United States and of potential foreign policy solutions. Studying these issues further will be a significant step in the journey that I began when I first flipped on the news as a child.



在六年级的时候,当我选择Peter Jenning作肖像模特时,肯定令很多人大跌眼镜。当我的小学同学发现我最喜欢的电视节目是“20/20”的时候,他们都感到惊讶不已。在我还是一个年轻的孩子的时候,我就已经对当前时事和世界政治非常的感兴趣了。作为一名大学生,我选择了主修政治学。在学习的过程中,我也发觉自己对国外的语言和文学产生了强烈的热爱之情。这个愿望合并了我所有的学术兴趣,我确信要继续从事一个关于国际关系的研究生学位。

在我的大学本科教育阶段,我在华盛顿D.C.的法国大使馆做了一个学期的实习。首先,这次经历是非常伤脑筋的。每个人都说得很快,我开始怀疑自己的法语技巧。我经常的疑惑我是否正确的听到某人所说,是否回答适合的意思。最糟糕的是,似乎这些所有的实习者法语说的都非常的完美、熟练。我记得最后离开的周末,我已经放心了,没有了过去对自己的不自信。包括少数困难时期的开端,我认为我的实习是最有价值的教育经历。

当我最初开始我的实习的时候,我特别没有把握可以获得这个工作。当然,我拥有一篇好的简历和一封好的推荐信,但是我不认为关于法国我需要不断地去了解很多。至今虽然我学习了大量的关于外交团体和法国国家利益的任务,但是我认识到了更多关于我自己。这个经历给了我一个坚固的链接在我的学术兴趣和职业前景之间。针对这次实习我计划建立一个长期的目标并且成功的完成我的计划。

在第一个星期,我认识到我想做的更多,不仅仅是回答电话和回复邮件--很平常的值班和实习。逐渐的我开始承担更多的职责,最终我成了一个合格的法国大使馆时事通讯的新闻捐助者。而且,在特殊方案中我与印刷和通讯办公室的主管合作。通过这些经历我学习到了很多特性和方法,开始工作在一个适当的位置每个人都有的意见和观点但是都朝着一个公共的目标。在我实习的最后阶段,我有了一个非常好的理解关于这次机会,越来越热心于国际关系这个职业。

这次我在法国大使馆的经历定形了我的学院的和职业目标。我现在相信一个国际关系的职业将给予我一个领域既挑战性又令人兴奋。对于发生在民族间的问题没有容易的,但是有助于朝着新的解决方案来完成工作。结合我的兴趣和经验,我相信一个国家关系的研究生学位将很好的为我职业目标做准备。面对美国潜在的外交政策解答我希望达到一个较好的理解。在我的历程中学习这些更深一层的论点是非常有意义的一步。
