Student Spotlight: Caroline Doyle '17

Jun 16 2017

Posted In:


In June 2017, Caroline Doyle earned her B.A. in International Relations, with a focus on the history of nuclear weapons.

She chose this focus area, because she thinks it is a “fascinating and frighteningly relevant topic.”

During her time at Stanford, Caroline was a paid Research Assistant at the Hoover Institution, where she worked for Senior Fellow Russell Berman analyzing ISIS’s recruitment tactics and use of social media.

Caroline is most proud of being able to balance both athletics and academics at Stanford, where she was a two-time captain of the women's tennis team. Caroline, who was recognized by the Pac 12 as the scholar athlete of the year, says she is proud of how she was able to accomplish both her athletic and academic goals at the same time.

After graduation, Caroline is looking forward to studying abroad in Amsterdam and Berlin. When she returns, she’ll be working in investment management Menlo Park.

“IR has greatly prepared me for my next steps through its interdisciplinary nature, which allowed me to take a range of classes,” Caroline said. “I received a full education that has helped me to better understand the world and international security.”

Best of luck Caroline, and congratulations!
