Maria SilvestriBachelor's student
"I chose GMSI with the idea of learning how to tackle world problems. During the program I learned to think about issues from different perspectives: organizational, economical, and sociological. And last but not least, I found a second family in my fellow students."
Amber DekkerBachelor's student
"I wanted to find a study course that would educate me in several different fields. My interests range from sociology to economics and psychology, and I really enjoy taking classes that relate to all those areas."
"During my internship at Care Nederland I did research on social media use for women's rights in Afghanistan. My research gave me even more insight into the challenges that women in Afghanistan have to face every day."
