B.A. completed! M.A. to follow!

Having completed the last two requirements of undergraduate work despite not being enrolled (done via CLEPs!) I am now awaiting the final result of a degree audit to make sure everything is on point.

This has been an amazing journey full of pain, sacrifice, exultation, and wonder.

I finished with a flourish — this was not easy but instead rather traumatic. I’m still recovering.

Looking forward to starting my graduate chapter! (Assuming I get a TA post to cover tuition… )

Cultivating Humanity: A Classical Defense of Reform in Liberal Education (Dr. Martha C. Nussbaum)

"Drawing on Socrates and the Stoics, Nussbaum establishes three core values of liberal education–critical self-examination, the ideal of the world citizen, and the development of the narrative imagination."

Mae Jemison: Teaching art & science together (TED talk)

“Mae Jemison is an astronaut, a doctor, an art collector, a dancer … Telling stories from her own education and from her time in space, she calls on educators to teach both the arts and sciences, both intuition and logic, [holistically] – to create bold thinkers.” (TED page)
