What have I gained from studying the Humanities?

Studying the humanities nourishes my education at Princeton. Through the humanities, I find beauty in language and art that adds meaning to my education in sociology. I’ve found communities of people on campus that are interested in the same things as I am within the humanities. Through the Behrman fellowship, I’ve been involved in interesting conversations that have helped me reflect on my own life experiences.
