Kerry Wang ’20

The IR Program would like to congratulate all those students who graduated from the IR Major in 2020. We want to honour the knowledge and insight these students have to share even though they are not able to do it in person, so will be featuring many of them in a series of interviews here online. Go forth, grads, we are proud of you!

Why did you choose to study IR?

It’s a very interdisciplinary major which allows me to broaden my horizons.

What was one significant learning moment that happened during your degree? 

I met many friends with similar visions in life through IR courses or social events.

What is one thing that you did/were involved in that you think future IR students should consider? 

I think they should attend more IR events before entering the program so they can have a whole image about what IR can give them and what they can do after they got the IR degree.

Most memorable or favourite IR class? And why? 

POLI 374 by professor Allen Sens. This course answers all the questions I have for global affairs and professor Sens has amazing experience working with the UN.

Any advice for future IR Majors?

Don’t afraid to choose different courses and be open-minded.
