My name is Dr. Agneza Božic Roberson. I am very excited to teach at Palm Beach State College.  All my academic work has been of an interdisciplinary nature: I studied both communication and political science at the University of Zagreb. I received my MA in Communication from Western Michigan University and my PhD in Political Science from Western Michigan University. My professional life allows me to practice both theory and practice of political science. I was fortunate to work as a contracting interpreter for Bosnian, Croatian and Serbian languages for the U.S. Department of State, the United Nations International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia (ICTY), and several other international agencies. I still work for two global interpreting corporations. In terms of teaching, I have taught Political Science (Introduction to Political Science, Russian and East European Politics, Introduction to Comparative Politics, Contemporary Geopolitical Affairs, and American Government), and Communication (Fundamentals of Speech Communication, Mass Media and Society, and Public Speaking) classes in state and private colleges and universities for over ten years and I always felt that teaching political science classes were the most gratifying classes to teach.  These classes help my students become more politically aware and active in the local, national and global community.
