German and Art Major
I had the opportunity to study abroad through the German department. I chose to study in Mainz, Germany, because it's a city with a rich printmaking and bookmaking history. Both disciplines, German and art, greatly influenced one another – and that's the appeal of an interdisciplinary education.
