Graduation year: 2009
Majors/Minors: Italian & Gender Studies majors
My Gender Studies Major has open my perspective and helped teach me about differing viewpoints that I had never really considered. I believe that it's really made my education more complete because I can apply what I have learned in my Gender Studies class in almost every other class I've taken. Gender studies have helped teach me how to relate to other people. It's especially useful because graduate school and employers will appreciate my ability to relate to other people outside of my own experiences. The Gender Studies department definitely has some of the most interesting classes at Notre Dame. I have loved every one of my classes and I cannot imagine my Notre Dame experience without those classes.
