Joel Hatline, a senior Political Science student, recently participated in the United States Department of State internship program. The internship program gives graduate and undergraduate students the opportunity to work at one of the many U.S. Embassies around the world, or in one of the State Department's offices in D.C. These internships allow students interested in diplomacy an opportunity for hands-on experience in American foreign relations. Joel’s internship, from June 9th through August 18th 2012, allowed him to work as an intern at the U.S. Embassy in Paramaribo in the small South American country of Suriname. Joel was able to gain experience in many of the embassy branches, including the political and economic section, the consulate and the public affairs sections. This internship allowed Joel the opportunity to observe international treaty deliberations, interact with Surinamese media outlets, and meet with members of the Surinamese government. “It was truly one of the most fulfilling experiences I have ever had; this internship gave me a chance to make an impact by applying the knowledge I gained at Andrews University,” said Hatline.
