Bachelor of Arts

New Mexico State University
  • I began my studies in Anthropology, where I learned of the twin roles of biology and culture and their impact on people, groups, and society. I also gained a language and linguistics research background, familiarizing me with the science of phonemes and language. This assisted greatly when learning an advanced language such as Arabic. Research fields: Forensic anthropology, pre-historic environmental manipulation in Native America.

  • My interest in peoples led to a second major in History which gave me research skills and familiarity with multiple historical narratives, as well as familiarity with the subjective roles of motivation. I also learned the value of researching primary source documents. Research fields: military history, comparative religion, Bachelor thesis: Water laws of New Mexico as they pertain to Dona Ana county.
