About Andrew Schwieder

Hi! My name is Andrew Schwieder, a former student of the William & Mary/St Andrews Joint Degree Programme, I began studying International Relations at William & Mary full time starting in Fall 2013. I am a member of the William & Mary Rowing Club and the Delta Chi Fraternity, and an ex-member of the St. Andrews Boat Club.

In the summer of 2013, I worked as an intern with the Specially Protected Areas and Wildlife division of the Caribbean Environmental Programme’s Regional Coordinating Unit in Kingston, Jamaica. I hope to graduate from William & Mary in the spring of 2015 and move on to graduate study.
