Student SpotlightTanner Tattan '24
majors: political science, American Studies
"The Politics Department curriculum has equipped me with the theoretical and practical knowledge I need to conduct rigorous research in my academic pursuits while also serving me well in internship opportunities. The three constitutional law courses with Professor of Politics Paul Passavant — Constitutional Law, Civil Rights, and Civil Liberties — furthered my interest in pursuing a legal career and I aspire to attend law school soon after graduation. Outside of the classroom, I have had the opportunity to work on two political campaigns, including that of HWS Trustee and New York State Senator Jeremy Cooney '04. Opportunities for career exploration and forging my path through the major would not have been possible without the careful guidance and mentorship from the Politics faculty."
