Why did you choose your major?

I think political science, combined with my minors in Spanish and economics, provides me with a unique lens through which to view the world. I would love to pursue another degree after WAC, probably either by obtaining a Ph. D. in one of those topics, or by attending law school. I’m confident that the type of thinking that these majors require will really help to prepare me for whatever option I choose to pursue.
