Penn State Berks students accompanied the World Affairs Council of Greater Reading on its bus trip to the United Nations on Wednesday, April 27, 2011.  
Dr. Randall Newnham, Professor of Political Science, and students Djamila Cassidy, a junior majoring in Global Studies from Reading, and Lilia Stone, a first-year student from Chester Springs, visited United Nations headquarters, heard briefings from the U.S. Mission to the United Nations, and also heard from members of the Israeli mission to the United Nations.
In addition, several Reading High School students participated in the excursion, led by their teacher Bruce Kauffman ’04, a graduate of the Penn State Berks Global Studies baccalaureate degree program.
The Global Studies degree program provides students with a set of analytical and interpersonal skills that will prepare them for entry-level employment in a wide range of government agencies, non-profit organizations, and business and industry. Active and collaborative experiences include intensive study abroad and internship opportunities. Students can choose from two different options within the major–Contemporary History and Politics or Latin American Culture.
