Challenge your cultural assumptions as you discover values and customs around the world. Spend a summer conducting fieldwork in Guyana or study abroad for a semester as you open your mind to new ways of problem-solving, communication and living together as humans. The research, writing and analysis skills you gain will equip you for success in graduate school or a variety of careers.
