New York University (NYU), New York, NY, US, Bachelors, Gallatin School of Individualized Study

As a student of NYU's Gallatin School of Individualized Study, I was allowed to create my own interdisciplinary major and encouraged to enroll in a variety of classes within NYU's various colleges. While this academic freedom allowed me to gain a foundational understanding for many topics and industries, I was also forced to create a unique "concentration" of study, which was ultimately justified by a senior year colloquium that covered a short thesis and 25 books pertaining to its topic. While exploring fields such as PR and graphic design, my core curriculum centered around architecture, urban planning and sustainable design.
