When Alexis Dale-Huang (MASIA’21) enrolled in the Master of Arts in Asian Studies (MASIA) program at SFS, she was eager to learn from her professors’ regional expertise and take advantage of the unique internship and work opportunities afforded by Georgetown’s location in the U.S. capital.
Two years — and one pandemic — later, Dale-Huang is preparing to graduate and continue on in her role as a research assistant at the U.S.-China Economic and Security Review Commission. Though the pandemic has created unexpected challenges in Dale-Huang’s master’s experience, she credits supportive and knowledgeable faculty in the Asian Studies Program (ASP) with providing essential resources and support.
“I will always remember the support I received from the faculty and staff in the Asian Studies Program, especially during the COVID-19 pandemic,” Dale-Huang says. “I have thoroughly enjoyed all of the classes I have taken at Georgetown and look forward to seeing how I can apply the skills and knowledge I have learned to a future research career in Asia-Pacific security.”
