Alumnus - Grad Year 1988

Academics Rating

I majored in American Studies, an interdisciplinary major combining history, literature, art history, music, sociology and more. I really appreciated this cultural approach to 20th century American literature, which was what I wanted to focus on. I worked hard but never felt overwhelmed - in part, I think, that was because I really loved what I was doing.


Alumnus - Grad Year 2005

Academics Rating

I did a double major in History and International Studies and had a higher-than-average workload as a result. When I attended, the strongest departments were history, english, economics, and political science. Those majors were the most popular as a result. My favorite lecture classes included History of Modern China, Cold War, Constitutional Law, and Brain & Thought (an intro neuroscience class). I loved my smaller seminar classes, too, each of which has 15 students or fewer. One crafts their own workload. You can get by coasting if you take a bunch of "gut" easy classes, but I took a moderately challenging set, because i wanted to make the most out of the education. Still, I managed to strategically line up my classes such that, for junior and senior year, I often had 4-day weekends.
