Matthew Pickering

School of Public and International Affairs, Class of 2024


I am considering a concentration in the School of Public and International Affairs and pursuing certificates in Humanistic Studies.

Role(s) held in the Humanistic Studies Program:

Humanistic Studies Certificate Student, Humanities Mentor

Activities I participate in on campus:

Princeton Pianists Ensemble, Princeton University Nonprofit Consulting

Other experiences I can can advise people on:

Internships through Princeton, campus life

What I have gained from studying the Humanities:

I’ve realized that most of the things that people are worrying about now are things that people in the past have also worried about! And drawing on that past knowledge today is both illuminating and reassuring.
