I’ve always been interested in international affairs, development, politics, and governance. La Follette’s MIPA is great with all of them.

Jean-Rene Watchou has come full circle. Nearly four years after graduating from La Follette with a Master of International Public Affairs degree, he is back in Madison helping other immigrants adjust to life in the United States and navigate the legal system.

The shrinking world draws Hilary "H.J." Waukau to international public affairs. "The world is becoming increasingly connected in a way never seen before," he says. "The unprecedented level of exchange across borders, not only in trade, commerce and communication, but also in ideology and culture puts a premium on all of us to think about how our actions affect communities around the world."

The client-based project aspect of many courses has helped me develop better communication, time management, and team-working skills.

Amanda Wilmarth wants to improve U.S. relations with China and ease tensions on the Korean Peninsula, so 10 years after completing her bachelor's degree in international relations and East Asian studies, she is back at the University of Wisconsin–Madison, pursuing a Master of International Public Affairs degree.

Three 2009 La Follette School graduates will give an encore of their workshop presentation to a Milwaukee Common Council committee in July. After hearing their recommendations on municipal solid waste collection fees in May, Mayor Tom Barrett suggested that the students share their findings with the Common Council.
