I have loved my time so far in the Social Studies department. Social Studies offers flexibility, rigor, and above all, access to terrific professors and departmental support. Though I was initially intimidated by Social Studies 10the required, year-long political and social theory courseit turned out to be one of the most intellectually rewarding classes I have taken. I frequently think back to what I learned from the lectures, reading, and my tight-knit tutorial.
