What are the benefits of being a political science major at Marist?
My major is a great way to gain a multidisciplinary education with a plethora of opportunities. Political science teaches students to think critically about the most pressing issues in the world today. Furthermore, students of political science gain valuable experience in public speaking and analytical writing. Political Science at Marist provides opportunities for policy internships in Albany, Washington DC, and London, and offers students many opportunities to engage with the community through various conferences, on-campus clubs, and guest lecture events.
What do you hope to go after graduation?
I'm still working on that. I’m hoping to go to graduate school for a Master’s in Conflict Resolution and Peace Studies
What was your most meaningful experience at Marist?
Choosing one "most meaningful moment at Marist" is far too challenging for me, as there have been so many moments here at Marist that mean so much to me for different reasons. Between moments performing with friends as close as family, to debating world issues in New York with the Model UN team, my bag of meaningful Marist moments is filled to the brim.
