I've chosen my path at IU carefully. I have picked a curriculum that takes a deep dive into my (many) interests, but also will allow me to acquire the skills needed for any career. It's all part of my 1-2-3-4 Plan at IU:
2 Certificates and Notations.
Four years. One path.
Minor in Urban Planning and Development
Majors in journalism (with a concentration in public relations), political science, and economics.
Certificates and notations
The Liberal Arts and Management Program's business certificate and the Hutton Honors College Notation
Heuristics and COGNITIVE biases
College: Hutton Honors College
Department: Cognitive Science
Term: Fall 2020
CLASS DESCRIPTION: Our brains are extremely powerful. Humans are forced to take in an extreme number of inputs at one time, by the very nature that our world moves so fast. It's astonishing how fast our brains work; however, it has its drawbacks. This class taught about the dark side of our brain's quick, effortless movements called "heuristics."
MY WORK: I took this class because it allowed me to explore my interest in social media and journalism in the context of cognitive science. I presented my term paper at the Hutton Honors College's research symposium in April 2021, and it is in the works to be published.
