German and international studies
“I’m really interested in traveling. I’ve been abroad a few times already, and I’d like to continue doing that.”
Erika Bowshers, a junior double majoring in German and international studies, said her dream job would be almost anything that would enable her to travel the world.
“I’m really interested in traveling. I’ve been abroad a few times already, and I’d like to continue doing that,” said Bowsher.
Her goals include graduate school and possibly obtaining her doctoral degree.
“After that I would like to work for either the UN or a nonprofit organization that specializes in international relations or humanitarian aid,” she said.
Bowsher’s love of travel may have stemmed from a trip to China when she was a member of the high school marching band and served as a musical ambassador.
“It was really interesting to see the cultural exchange and interact with people from a different country,” she said. “That’s when I knew I wanted to do something that involved international issues.”
