Rodríguez, a native Venezuelan, graduated from UAB in 2008 with a BA in International Studies and a minor in Political Science.

Mariana Rodríguez loved her International Studies (ITS) classes and teachers so much that she went on to receive a PhD in Political Science from Vanderbilt University in 2013. Those classes, especially the advanced ones, were fundamental in preparing her for grad school. “They provided similarly challenging curricula as the graduate level courses I took at Vanderbilt.”
