Students of International Studies: Cesar Avila

Seeking to learn more about the global community and to look deeper into his Mexican heritage, Cesar Avila is pursuing a major in International Studies with focuses in Latin America and comparative politics and societies. Cesar has elected to further explore the interaction between politics and the global economy by also pursuing a major in French and International Economics (FLIE). Using his internationally oriented skill sets and multidisciplinary knowledge of economics, Avila hopes to pursue a career with the Foreign Service upon graduation.

As Cesar works to complete his sophomore year at UK, he has enhanced his expertise in Latin American societies and politics through studying under Dr. Magda Hinojosa, a distinguished professor of political science at Arizona State University. This experience further propelled his desire to study abroad in both Argentina and France. He sees these cultural exchanges as an opportunity to expand upon concepts of international relations learned through his introductory coursework as well as a chance to continue to develop his foreign language skills in an immersive setting.

Pursuing his passion for international studies beyond the classroom, Cesar currently acts as the President of UK’s Society of International Studies. Imploring his knowledge and experience within the discipline, he has worked to foster a community that, “brings together International Studies majors for discussion, connection, and events related to the major.” Cesar also acts as an Ambassador for the College of Arts & Sciences, sharing his experiences as an IS major with fellow students. Having generated a diverse portfolio of marketable skills and leadership experiences, Cesar has prepared himself to pursue selective graduate programs in Economics.
