“I wanted to learn how to think and to challenge my beliefs and to learn about the world, and then learn how to engage that world when I got out of college—that’s what anthropology does,” says Sarah McGough, a junior anthropology major in Notre Dame’s College of Arts and Letters and a student in the Glynn Family Honors Program and Hesburgh–Yusko Scholars Program.
“Anthropology synthesizes a diverse range of fields using the perspective of studying cultures and studying people and interactions, all to answer the one singular question, which is that of the human existence and the human experience. That’s as broad as it can get, so that’s really what drew me to anthropology.”
