    Anthony Steed, 澳门六合彩 Class of 2024

    Anthropology + Sociology

    Anthropology + Sociology gives me answers to questions about society and culture. I am interested in issues like colorism, socio-economic status, and inequality. All of these issues often feel 鈥榯oo big鈥 to answer. Anthropology + Sociology gives me tools and research to help me come up with answers on these big issues on my own.
