My name is Maya Dotson. I’m from the United States. I am currently pursuing a master’s in international relations at Swansea University. I chose Wales and particularly Swansea because I found that the university had a great international relations program with an emphasis in security studies. Something that has become increasingly clear is that the program encourages students to enhance their skills in the fundamentals of research while allowing them to follow their individual passions within the discipline. The sky is truly the limit at Swansea. Outside of the classroom, the people both students and the local communities have been amazing and welcoming. I look forward to this next semester and continuing to explore Swansea and Wales!
