· English Literature major · PATH (Preparing Accomplished Transfers to the Humanities) Program “I have always enjoyed literature and have found a lot of inspiration through the professors and mentors I have met at UC San Diego. Ultimately, I want to take what inspires me and use my major to achieve a similar role of those who helped guide me. I’m also thankful I found the PATH (Preparing Accomplished Transfers to the Humanities) program. UC San Diego’s increased attention to the humanities through programs such as PATH helped make this university my top choice.”
