You’ll even learn how to make videos and conduct interviews like a pro, on a small budget.

Hansen Fellows come from all majors. They often have an interest in multicultural understanding and international relations, diplomacy, economic development, or international security. They receive hands-on training from experts and leading practitioners at the University of San Diego’s School of Leadership and Education Sciences. They always acquire a new understanding and appreciation of the world through peers from 21 countries. Most of all, Hansen Fellows form life-long friendships.
