IPED Fall 2020 Lecture Series: Sean Cox, Foreign Service and USDA

Wednesday, November 4
1 – 2 p.m.

Please join the International Political Economy and Development (IPED) community to listen to Sean Cox, a foreign service officer at the Foreign Agricultural Service (FAS). Based in Rome, Italy, Cox has been with FAS since 2014, with assignments in both Rome and Guatemala. He will be sharing his insights, among other things, on his journey to a career in public service and the foreign service officer program. Cox holds a dual master’s degree in economics and IPED from Fordham.

The U.S. Foreign Service is tasked to promote peace, support prosperity, and protect American citizens around the world. A foreign service officer will be stationed in one of the 270 US embassies, consulates, and other diplomatic missions. With numerous pathways into the program—from economic and political officers to consular and management officers—it could be a career track for you.


This event is open to alumni, faculty/staff, parents, students, and the public.
