Studies on the Diplomatic Mission of the United States Embassy in Paris, France, and the Foreign Service as a Career
MetadataShow full item record
This Senior Individualized Project stems from my interests in government and French. I originally pursued an internship with the state Department in order to expand on my previous experience with the role of the government, a Bicentennial Intern who taught schoolchildren about the founding of the United States Constitution and the era of its origination. As a result of the internship at the embassy in Paris, I have developed a text in which I describe the role of an embassy and provide basic information about the Foreign Service. In addition to researching these two topics, my internship has given me insights on diplomacy and the work and lifestyle of diplomats. My experience has provided me with the tools to analyze both subjects to arrive at a better understanding of the dynamics of foreign relations as well as to pursue my interest in foreign languages. I conclude my SIP by exploring some of the questions that were raised by my internship at the embassy.If you are not a current K College student, faculty, or staff member, email firstname.lastname@example.org to request access to this SIP.
