“Getting both a science and English degree is a no brainer for me - it provides me with plenty of opportunities such as being more employable over those with just a science degree... The freedom of having options is invaluable to me. The fact that I'll be able to properly communicate what my research is about is an added bonus.”
-Evi de Bois, English Major
