Support the Department of French & Italian

Josie Quinn

Josie Quinn | French, Pre-Business: The humanities are an advantage in the education system. We are taught important cultural differences which puts us apart from the other colleges at the UA. Due to the fact that we have these skills, jobs are more likely to hire us, and we have a more open perception on various aspects. I use my humanities major more than I ever dreamed I would, and I love every bit of it!
