My Wooster education prepared me to think thoughtfully and analytically about issues in the world at large and in the workplace, and, more importantly, has taught me how to coherently articulate those ideas in writing and to other people. Independent Study especially contributed to this. Having to intelligently express an in-depth argument has made me intellectually independent; I feel confident in expressing my own ideas in writing or orally, whether those ideas are popular or not. Communicating effectively is a huge part of my job right now at a children’s museum, and the skills I’ve garnered from IS are an invaluable asset. Within the next two years, my plans are to pursue a graduate degree in Museum Studies (with an emphasis on Education and Interpretation) at JFKU in the Bay Area. This program will allow me to further my education while still working and gaining experience in the museum world, which is something that is very important to me. After getting my M.A., I plan to work in a historical museum’s curatorial or education department. After gaining more experience in the museum world, I hope to eventually pursue a Ph.D. in American History (with an emphasis on gender issues, specifically masculinity) in order to become a curator at a museum focusing on American history.
