German Studies

After Lewis & Clark

  • Beau Barnes

    Class of 2006

    I graduated from LC in 2006 with a double major in International Affairs and Foreign Languages, after having spent 2004-05 in Munich. Having studied Spanish, German, and Politics, I knew I wanted to do something in the international political world, so at the end of my senior year I applied for a program in Berlin called the “Internationales-Parlaments-Praktikum”. A few months later, and after a rather stressful interview with several German officials, I was accepted into the program.

    I then went to Berlin, where I started my work as a Praktikant in the office of a member of Parliament from the Social Democratic Party (SPD). I hope to use my studies in International Affairs and German at LC and focus on foreign policy issues such as the German relationship with NATO, the EU, and their historic, important and often complicated relationship with the U.S.
