Why did you decide to become a German minor?

I became a German minor to expand my knowledge of the language and culture of Germany. After taking my first two semesters of German at Ursinus, I knew I wanted to continue to work with the amazing professors and be a part of the small, close-knit community of students in the German department. 

What has been your most rewarding experience in your German minor?

My most rewarding experience as a German minor has been working with the professors here. I’ve had the opportunity to take classes with all 3 professors in the department, and I really enjoyed each class in different ways. I also met one of my best friends at Ursinus in my German class freshman year! 

What are your plans after Ursinus?

After graduating from Ursinus this year I will be attending Drexel University in Philadelphia to earn a MS in neuroscience. I plan to continue the program after completing my Ms, to earn a PhD. I’ll be conducting research focused on repeated traumatic brain injury.
