Environmental Science Major
I've always been passionate about science and the environment specifically. At Northwestern, the Environmental Science program gave me the opportunity to explore a wide range subjects from water resource management to ecology to climate science. In particular, I appreciated how the Environmental Science program integrated science with policy and facilitated student engagement with a wide set of career and research opportunities. It also led me to independent research in a climate science research lab, which led me to writing a senior thesis and complemented my coursework very effectively. In the fall of 2018 I started a PhD program in climate science at Dartmouth College, and Northwestern's combination of wide-ranging coursework with independent research very effectively prepared me for advanced research in the environmental sciences.
