Majoring in International Studies and Government
Member since 12/7/2012
I worked along side the VP of sales for a telecommunications company in Washington D.C. this past summer and it was the best experience of my life. My internship this past summer gave me the confidence to find more internships, make connections and reach out to potential companies or positions that may be available to me in terms of future jobs. I worked 40-hour works and was payed $10/hour. I also worked on two large sales projects throughout the summer so I maintained a commitment to the company in and out of the office.
I enjoy social sciences, I am not a financial kind of student and I am not a sciency-thinker. I enjoy my major because I have a genuine passion for what I am learning while in class. I think the one major aspect I love about the program is that it is always staying up with current events. Regardless of what class I am in we will always be able to talk about something that is currently happening in history, in the news or on campus and how it is affecting our world.
As an undeclared international studies major I would say I am happy with the program. If I were to do it all over again I wish I would have asked for more guidance, in terms of what classes to take and who to talk to, to get in to the business school and then would have completely changed my major. However, the professors and International studies major department has extremely helpful and passionate staff and I sincerely appreciate all that they have done for me i.e. getting in to classes, finding abroad courses that fit into my undergraduate requirements etc. My career goal or goal so far is to just graduate it with a higher gpa and find a job where I can learn more of what I want to do as a career.
The process of getting into the School of Human Ecology was based on GPA. In the past, all students were accepted however, with a influx of students wanting to do majors within Sohe the requirements have increased which I was a bit disappointed by.
