You will appreciate the interdisciplinary nature of the AAFS program, which allows for a rich and challenging field of inquiry that can benefit you if you have an interest in history, policy, culture, language, law, foreign affairs, medicine, sociology, psychology, education, and various other areas. If you wish to engage in more concentrated study within the major, you may design an appropriate course of study through directed readings and independent learning with the permission of the program director and a professor within the program. Study AAFS for an invaluable foundation in critical thinking, research, writing, and analysis—skills that form the core of a liberal arts education.
