UHM German B.A. ’13 Kyra Howe has been accepted into the Master of Arts in German and European Studies (MAGES) program at the BMW Center for German and European Studies at the Edmund A. Walsh School of Foreign Service at Georgetown University.
Kyra Howe’s admission to the MAGES program is the first step in joining this top-ranked school and becoming part of a prestigious group of MAGES alumni who are leaders in the transatlantic relationship in the U.S. and abroad.
Kyra writes: “As part of the MAGES incoming class orientation, we went to the EU Delegation and the State Department. Such amazing opportunities and the semester hasn’t even started yet!”
Kyra was selected from a highly qualified and competitive group of applicants.
She was a double major in German and Anthropology with a minor in History, graduating magna cum laude in Dec. ’13. Subsequently, she was awarded a Fulbright scholarship for the 2014-2015 academic year and studied and taught in Austria. The relationship between German language, literature and culture and immigrant populations in Germany has been at the forefront of her interests. Kyra is particularly interested in the structures that support language learning for refugees in Austria and Germany.
She was consistently on the Dean’s List, and finished with a cumulative GPA of 3.8. She is a member of four honor societies: Phi Beta Kappa, the oldest honor society for the liberal arts and sciences; Golden Key – International Honor Society; Lambda Alpha National, the Anthropology Honorary Society; and Delta Phi Alpha, the German National Honorary Society.
We congratulate Kyra Howe on her success and wish her well at Georgetown.
