Senior Consulate Officer

“The Social Science Department of the School of Liberal Arts in Ateneo de Zamboanga University opened my eyes to see and understand the interconnectedness of each state to the other. Our professors provided us the core knowledge and crucial analytical skills that helped us to understand how globalization affects/have affected each and every one of us and how the international system works. It also taught us the correlation of history, politics, economics, and law on a global lever. My 4 years of studying in the School of Liberal Arts was like a “survival guide” to me before I entered the “real world” of foreign service.”
