Jacob Winn

BA Candidate, International Affairs and Political Science, Dean's Scholar, Class of 2021

"I have always loved politics, political science, and international affairs, and so the prospect of choosing my own research path that would combine all of those areas was my top priority.

In the Dean's Scholars Program, I am researching the influence of the Brexit movement, referendum, and EU withdrawal politics on the British Conservative Party, which has allowed me to combine all of my broader passions."
