University of Missouri
Bachelor's of Arts, Political Science and Women and Gender Studies
My undergraduate coursework largely revolved around marginalized populations and their interactions with political and social institutions. My political science major gave me the basic framework for understanding political institutions and the way they function to assist some and leave out others. My women and gender studies major was interdisciplinary and combined sociology, psychology, history, media studies, and black studies in order to understand how women, people of color, LGBTQ people, people with disabilities, and people with other marginalized identities are harmed by formal and informal institutions.
