Andie Marie Bolton

Credentials: B.S. with Honors in the Liberal Arts | Major(s): Biology | Certificate: Health and the Humanities

Obtaining an Honors Degree in the Liberal Arts has complemented my undergraduate education by providing enriching academic opportunities that have increased the breadth of my education and deepened my intellectual engagement in many classes. For example, when taking a Cellular Biology course, I completed an additional Honors project on the topic of cancer. After learning about the cell biology of cancer in class, I researched the history of cancer treatment and examined the social implications of cancer. This was a meaningful project for me as it compelled me to make interdisciplinary connections between science and society, a skill that will benefit me in my future endeavors. The Honors program has cultivated my love of education and I hope to progress this love into habits that promote lifelong learning.
