“I took a University Seminar in sociology and I really liked it—it fit my personality,” says Sam Lee, a Notre Dame senior from Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan. “Sociology shapes your lens and perspective and how you see people in a larger context and the social forces that shape people. It’s applicable to a lot of things.”
Lee, who hopes to become a doctor working with underserved populations, says he appreciates the Catholic perspective Notre Dame offers. “I think that’s most evident in classes in sociology that revolve around equality and social justice. That kind of spirit really solidified my interest in social work and helping people in need.”
