I have always had a love of society, but more importantly, trying to understand our society and how it functions. I was an accounting major previously and decided to come back to get a Sociology degree with a minor in anthropology. My love for Sociology started when I was an accounting major — the classes that I took at Drexel were so integrated in real-world applications and as such, forced me to think outside of my comfort zone and they challenged me. The courses that I took only furthered my love for the discipline and they were monumental in my decision to get a BA with a major in sociology and minor in anthropology.

When I returned to pursue my degree, I was so impressed with each course — the level of care that each professor took to relay the subject matter and the interesting assignments that tested my knowledge. Not only did these assignments test my knowledge of sociology, but more importantly, they furthered my critical thinking skills. I loved each assignment since they allowed me again to not only relate to real-world applications, but to also further my research and interests in LGBTQIA advocacy and awareness. Each class was a new adventure for me — an opportunity to go further than I have gone before — while still being actively engaged in the subject matter. I found that I could keep my LGBTQIA research as a common thread through all my classes, while learning how the multiple layers of each topic complimented my area of interest. The ability to keep my interest and challenge me at the same time was one of the major reasons I chose sociology as my major at Drexel University.
Understanding and appreciating the human condition is something that is paramount in each class of the sociology major, and I would highly recommend the program to other students who want to further their thinking and pursue opportunities that can lead to social change and social awareness. I have enjoyed my tenure as a sociology major so much that I am going to pursue another degree in Anthropology upon graduation!
