Erin Bourque

Political Science | International Affairs, BA

Graduated in 2019

With such a diverse set of interests, it was difficult at first for Erin to choose an undergraduate course of study. She chose Northeastern because of its emphasis on cultivating marketable skills, such as foreign language fluency, as well as foundation skills of writing clearly and reading critically. Erin graduated in 2019 with a Political Science and International Affairs combined major with a concentration in Security Studies and minors in Russian and History.

Erin’s Path

“I grew up with news and political commentary shows constantly on the TV and radio, interning for a Democratic congresswoman and attending Republican political rallies, and speaking across the country as a youth activist.”  She added, “I grew up valuing my voice and its power, its ability to effect positive change and responsibility to do so. Still, I knew I wouldn’t be nearly as effective without being well-informed and engaged with the world.”
