“During my freshman year, while still working hard on my English, I could not make up my mind about a major. The truth is, I was reluctant to specialize in one area by fear of missing out on the vast body of knowledge the world has to offer.
To me, all fields are tied in together. Languages are the highly intricate arts of self-expression, and the blueprints of the various cultural perspectives, experiences and identities of the world. The International and Global Studies program, the broadest and most inter-disciplinary major offered at UNCG, has provided me with a solid and well-rounded understanding of the world.
