Anna Ekstrand from James Cook University, Australia visits NAU
Anna Ekstrand, Director of Study Abroad Programs at James Cook University in Cairns, Australia, visited recently with department faculty, including Drs. Lori Poloni-Staudinger and Steve Wright. Many similarities between the James Cook University and NAU Political Science programs were discussed, including both programs having strengths in international affairs education. Anna encourages NAU students to consider spending a semester at James Cook University, and experiencing some of the most spectacular areas on Earth such as the Great Barrier Reef. Anyone interested studying abroad should contact the Center for International Education at NAU.
