The Cal Lutheran Experience

Working with Dr. Kingsbury has been eye-opening, to say the least. Every day has been an adventure in learning all the advance techniques professional chemists employ in expertly manipulating materials. My experience has grown greatly since the start of my research endeavors.

Global Studies

I chose to double major in Political Science and Global Studies after participating in the CLU Oxford Program. Prior to this, I was much more focused on American government and politics, but developed a more holistic view of governance and interdependency between countries and regions while I was abroad. This piqued my interest in international affairs, so I decided to add a Global Studies major to expose myself to the study of new (to me, at least), complex issues I was becoming more and more passionate about.

Being involved in my own research project over the summer was one of the most beneficial experiences of my undergraduate career. Working one-on-one with a professor who was so experienced in the research field gives me an edge for graduate school.
