我走进大学,与我未来四年将要看起来像一个非常具体的想法。

我一直喜欢文学与创意写作,所以我怀疑,我会想主修英语。我一直有种享受的理科班,我会考虑的,所以我怀疑,我会想跟着医学预科轨道。你可能已经拿起一个模式,我有什么,我想学我的怀疑。但我不能完全肯定,并来到哈佛让我舒服的不确定性,让我充分发掘了我的怀疑。

哈佛并不要求其进入一年级的学生申报专业。其实,学生没有正式宣布其浓度,直到他们的第二年的秋天。

前两个半学期,你在这里,你必须把你想采取任何课程,没有一个集中的预定课程的学习的影响的机会。这种结构,有没有知道来了自由,出了大门,我想献给我的大学四年全部四个,给了我一次暂停。

那是在我的学术生活急需的休息,它帮助我实现两个重要的事情,第一个是,不管我选择了学习,我会学习了两年半的时间。它必须涉及的东西,我真的很喜欢 - 爱 - 它必须是动态的,足以不断地进行我的。第二个是,有这么多不同的方式来邀请我的兴趣到我的学术生活在这里。

哈佛报价 50个不同的浓度,学生也可以通过我们的特殊浓度的选择构建自己的研究领域。

我的一个同学,因为她找不到直接解决什么,她希望提交她在大学的时候,围绕建成时尚和全球化浓度的任何领域。

So I admitted something to myself—I enjoyed science, but nothing about it made me want to spend the next few years with it. I love love loved literature and creative writing, had since I could remember, and I knew that if I didn’t spend time with it, I’d always be a little dissatisfied on campus. And the more time I spent considering how literature and writing had shaped my worldview, the more I realized that they had also opened up in me a distinct, and intense, frustration with oppressive systems of power (no matter where they were). Social justice became impossible to separate from my literary and writing life. Finding a concentration that married those three things has been amazing. I genuinely couldn’t imagine majoring in anything besides History & Literature.
