Bridging Cultures

Laura Curry

"As a history major, my researching, writing and communication skills can be used in a variety of fields. I believe that most unique and important to a history major is the cultural understanding, curiosity and open-mindedness that we bring to the table. I personally plan on pursuing a career in immigration and applying to law school."
