Teaching

I recently completed teaching as a visiting lecturer at Renmin Daxue (People’s University), leading a Masters level seminar on Theories of International Relations. I also acted as an adjunct lecturer at Boston College in the Department of Political Science.  The Boston College course focused on American Foreign Policy and it attracted a wide range of students particularly those interested in international studies, US history, and politics.  Along with this teaching experience, I have been a teaching fellow or teaching assistant for over 12 classes at the undergraduate, continuing education, and graduate levels.  All available student evaluations can be accessed below.  Also you can find my teaching philosophy statement here:  Teaching Philosophy and Approach (Rasmussen).
