Lucy Green

"I love my major because my classes are enjoyable while I take them, but they also make me so excited to get out and engage with the world around me. Every class piques a new interest in me (political research, Middle Eastern politics, longform journalism), and then equips me with the skills to pursue it after graduation!"
 - Lucy Green '19

Larissa Santos

"I enjoy International Studies because it is taught by good professors and it is a subject I love. The classes have relatively few students - which feel like private lectures - and the students are truly engaged and interested in the subject."
 - Larissa Lira Santos '19
