It's definitely opened my eyes to economics research and what it entails. It's given me a broader and deeper understanding of economics in general by virtue of all that I've had to read.
— Steven Feng, Maymester 2016
How did the experience impact you and your future educational/career/personal goals?
Since I took biomedical ethics and want to be a doctor, it really brought a lot of issues I knew I would have to think about in the future to the forefront of my thoughts. It allowed me to realize that there are legitimate argues on many sides of many issues in biomedical ethics, so decisions and opinions should not be undertaken lightly.

This program only solidified my desired career path.
