As an aspiring French history professor, I have the very special opportunity of taking a history research class in which I get to work with and examine primary documents from the 17th century at the Bibliotheque Nationale de France (National French Library). I am also currently enrolled in several art history classes, examining the Renaissance and Impressionist movements, as well as an advanced French literature course, and a CF course covering French and American relations during World War I and World War II.

Living in Paris with a French family, I also get to practice my French skills every night at dinner! I hope to also be able to travel this semester to some other countries in Europe to soak up the history and culture of Western Europe.
