Why I chose my major

I decided to pursue my master’s degree in HDFS through the Double Dawgs program because it allowed me to further explore the unique role that social, cultural and historical contexts have on the development of an individual and the family system. Through my courses, I have gained new perspectives on development and a more holistic understanding of how individuals differ within the circumstances of their environment. I hope to utilize this knowledge in my future aspiration of becoming a physician.

What I like most about FACS

After coming from the Franklin College of Arts and Sciences which housed my undergraduate degree, I loved the tight-knit community that FACS provided. The faculty, staff and students all strive to create a supportive environment and facilitate each other’s success.

Post-graduation plans

I plan to apply to medical school this upcoming application cycle. During that process, I intend to get a job in the medical field either as a research coordinator or a medical assistant.
