The research and critical thinking skills I developed through my courses and honors thesis project have prepared me for applying to graduate school and have also helped me to succeed beyond academia. The University provided ample opportunities to enhance and apply these skills outside of the classroom, too, through a summer study abroad program at the University of Cambridge and a semester-long internship program with a member of the U.S. House of Representatives in Washington, D.C.
