Political Science and International Studies

Arye Scott Beck is a double major in political science and international studies. Arye is a member of Phi Beta Kappa Honor Society and Chi Alpha Sigma (National Athlete Honor Society). In addition to his outstanding academic performance, he is a member of Stetson’s cross country team and active on campus. He is a member of the Student Government Association and serves as co-president of the Stetson Student-Athlete Advisory Committee and chair of the ASUN Student-Athlete Advisory Committee.

Arye’s senior research project focuses on why certain Latin American states refuse U.S. developmental and humanitarian aid. The project examines Andean countries and their interactions with the United States to determine if there are certain characteristics among some states that define the reasons they would reject aid. Arye's project reflects his desire, as one faculty mentor stated, "to studying and understanding the issues and problems of the world today, while also feeling those issues and problems as his own."

Following graduation, Arye plans to attend law school.
