Why Honors? As a teacher, I believe strongly in the power of interdisciplinary and comparative approaches to provide students with exceptional educational experiences, both by building bridges between things they already know and new content and by demonstrating the connections between topics, themes, and texts that they had not previously conceived of as being in dialogue with each other. In Honors, I hope to help students make connections between the hard sciences and humanities aspects of their university educations, to approach the pursuit of knowledge more holistically while also honing their ability to find reliable, meaningful answers to the questions they encounter along the way.
