I have loved my time so far in the Social Studies department! Social Studies offers flexibility, rigor, and above all, access to amazing professors and departmental support. Though I was initially intimidated by Social Studies 10---the required, year-long political and social theory course---it turned out to be one of the most intellectually rewarding and stimulating classes I have taken. I learned so much from the lectures, reading, and my tight-knit tutorial. Please feel free to reach out. I would love to meet to talk more about the concentration!
