“Don’t let research scare you. Especially if you’re a humanities major. I really had no idea whether or not I would end up graduating with honors, because as a junior, I still had no prospects of research. That was until Dr. Trout approached me about doing an English thesis. Don’t be afraid to approach your teachers and ask them for research! It’s way easier to find than you would think. Of course, don’t be like me and just wait for someone to approach you about it, go look for the opportunities yourself.”
