Justin Brown
jbSecond Lieutenant Justin Brown (US Army Reserves) is from Coopers, NC, near Elm City. Justin received his Bachelor of Science Degree in Political Science from East Carolina University in July of 2012 with a minor in Military Science. Now in the MAIS program, Justin’s concentration is in Security Studies, as he aspires to work in homeland security or even in international security positions. His research interests as of now include Genocide, Political Discourse, and Weapons of Mass Destruction. Currently Justin is a graduate assistant in the office of Academic Planning and Course Development. Editing, database maintenance, and course analysis are just a few aspects of this position, which will be useful in Justin’s career path. Outside of school and work, his time is spent outdoors either with the Army Reserves or on his own by participating in sports such as whitewater-kayaking and mountain biking. Justin tries to spend time practicing his Russian language skills with his Russian fiancé, as this is his language he expects to learn and retain. Justin believes this requirement will certainly be useful upon completing his field experience in Russia and speaking to his future in-laws!Student biography
