Claire Etheridge ’16 Senior Profile: German Studies

etheridgeMy experience with the German Department has been an amazing part of my undergraduate career. I started at William and Mary as an International Relations major, but as I fulfilled my language requirement with German I discovered amazing classes with inspiring professors, fascinating discussions, and opportunities to improve my writing and interpretation skills. I decided to double major and was able to focus on my interest areas, especially on a spring break German Department trip to Switzerland and Germany to study Early Modern Jewish life. My senior seminar was with a professor I had taken many courses with and other seniors I knew well, which helped us have amazing discussions and a really personalized experience characteristic of my time in the William and Mary Modern Languages Department.

After graduation, I will move to Charlotte, North Carolina and start work as a Business Associate at Red Ventures, a marketing and advertising firm which is expanding internationally.
