BA in Humanities, the Arts, and Social Thought (2021)

This is the first time that I have ever been in a place filled with so much diversity, yet have the feeling that we are all equal. This is a special feeling for me.

Attended: BA in Economics, Politics, and Social Thought '19

BCB provided me with a strong theoretical framework with which to analyze current issues. When faced with a question, I am able to relate it to greater themes.
