Hi all! My name is Kate Lancaster and I am a first-year graduate student at the School of Media and Public Affairs. Originally from the United Kingdom, I received my undergraduate degree in Politics and International Relations from the University of York in 2019. During this time, I interned at the US House of Representatives in the summer of 2018 and fell in love with Washington D.C. After graduating, I worked for the UK’s second-largest online investment platform based in Manchester before returning to D.C. for my graduate program. In my free time, I seek out D.C’s best music spots and stay active by running, SoulCycle and golf.


"For me, there was no other school like GW - the opportunity to live, breathe and study in this amazing city was unmatched. The strong network of students, professors and alumni means you are always supported, both academically and professionally. Attending GW has broadened my personal goals and made me excited for the years to come!"
