  • Testimonial van Pirmin Olde Weghuis

    Liaison Officer Europe at VH Strategies

    During my Master's track in American Studies I gained a lot of knowledge about the United States. I also improved my research, writing and spoken English skills. This is of great benefit in my current work for an American political consultant. I deal with transatlantic issues and developments in American politics on a daily basis.

    What attracted me to the Master’s track in American Studies was that you learn how to critically analyse culture, history and politics. Following this programme also gave me the opportunity to deepen my knowledge of two areas that interest me: the history of the American Revolution and American political culture.

    The Lantos Congressional Fellowship was a major highlight for me. In my six months as Lantos Fellow I worked for Congresswoman Napolitano in the House of Representatives. It was a fantastic experience to be able to walk round right at the heart of American democracy. 

    I also did an exchange at Central Michigan University. This too was one of the best experiences of my studies. Although I really enjoy my current work in American politics, in the future I would like to study for a second Master’s degree at a top university in the United States.
