College of Humanities
Welcome to Humanities
As education becomes ever more focused on professional degrees and vocational training, employers increasingly report that what they seek is not necessarily more specialized degrees but rather people who can think, who can synthesize, who can analyze, and who can apply a broad base of thought to a wide variety of areas.

Her work on conflict zones examines the colonial underpinnings of the mass rape of Tutsi women in the 1994 Rwandan genocide.
