Why did you choose your major?
Chelsea Whiteside, senior applied behavioral science major & sociology minor
“I chose to major in Applied Behavioral Science because I absolutely love children and working with them was, of course, exactly what I wanted to do for the rest of my life. I actually started out pre-nursing and one of the requirements for that is to take a child development course within the ABS department and fell in love with the courses and then just switched over.”
Caithe Alexander, sophomore human sexuality major & sociology and visual art minors
“I chose human sexuality because I love the LGBT+ community and I want to work with the community in one way or another for a career. The plan right now is to go into higher education and work on college campuses to make them a safe and supportive environment for students to be themselves and find out who they are.”
Paige Hansen, sophomore double majoring in biology and English
“When I came to KU, I had a hard time deciding between a science degree and a more creative degree. I started as strictly a biology major, but added English when I found that I really missed having a creative component to school. After graduation I plan to go into science writing/journalism. Think National Geographic or The New Yorker.”
