My major is called International Studies. I combine Political Science, Tourism Management and Policy, Spanish, and Geography. I am also doing a minor in Peace and Social Justice Studies, which is also interdisciplinary. Though the Interdisciplinary Studies, I will be able to integrate theoretical knowledge about broad global processes. It will help me to prepare for the variety of jobs and I will become well equipped to work anywhere in the world. My strong passion for traveling and experiencing living in different countries requires interdisciplinary major that will help me to achieve my career goals. This Interdisciplinary Studies major will be also a great foundation for my further graduate study.
I think that interdisciplinarity is about being able to pick the right components in order to achieve the right result. It has to be well thought out and it has to have a main idea. I think that Interdisciplinary Studies major is still underestimated and this field is not taken as seriously as it should. This is a problem that needs to be changed because this major is the future. Sooner or later people will be forced starting to broaden their scopes of interests and disciplines. The new era will require development of new interdisciplinary fields. I think Interdisciplinary Studies major is very beneficial and it has its uniqueness. I love the idea of freedom I have with this major and that I can do something exclusive which differs me from students who take regular majors offered at PSU. Interdisciplinary Studies major will become more and more common and I am glad it is offered at Plymouth State University.

I am little obsessed with traveling. I need to explore and visit as many places as possible. It is my life mission. I have traveled to 22 countries so far and I hope the number will drastically increase very soon.
