BA: History, African & African American Studies
AREAS OF EXPERTISE IN COLLEGE
At Stanford University, I received three degrees during my undergraduate years. I received a BA in African and African American Studies, a BA in History with a concentration in History, Literature, and the Arts, and an MA in Sociology.
Much of my work is related to the humanities and social sciences, which I used to then apply for and be accepted into the PhD program in History at Harvard University, where I then received my MA in History. I am now researching American history with an emphasis on California, the West, and the South, and intend to work in either public history or academic research.
