My name is Chuck Deibel and I am a second year joint JD/MIA student here at Penn State Law and the School of International Affairs. Prior to attending Penn State, I completed my undergraduate degree at the University of Arizona where I majored in political science and minored in Arabic. Prior to that, I served for four years in the United States Army as an Infantryman.
My area of concentration is international security studies where I hope to be able to apply legal concepts to the ever-evolving realm national and international security. Being at world class institution, I am able to explore interdisciplinary areas of academic study in regard to security issues. The faculty here are supportive and genuinely care about my success. The structure of the joint degree program allows me the flexibility to study across different areas and gives me a fuller educational experience. I know that when I graduate, I will be a more complete student who possesses the skills required for a successful career.
