In September 2017, my sophomore year at Davidson College, I declared a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science. I did so after a year of deliberation. The potential degrees I considered at first glance had no relation to my choice, such as Computer Science. However, after talking with several faculty members of the Davidson Political Science Department and even more students, I realized that Political Science combines nearly all my passions and places a special emphasis on my primary interest, civil discourse.
Political Science engages my curiosity in the field of Communication through its analysis of the effect of public speakers. It typically acknowledges the power of communication on world events, though that acknowledgment is challenged by some. It allows me to continue working on my passion of Computer Science and Mathematics by using statistics and statistics languages to prove its theories.
This summer I will be a participant in the competitive Davidson in Washington program, and internship and seminar program in Washington DC.
