Why LSRI at UIC?

I came into this program fascinated by the ways in which people understand stories as they are experienced through music, literature, and art, as well as the ways we learn to communicate as groups rather than as individuals. The interdisciplinary nature of UIC's LS program has allowed me to explore all of these interests--and develop new ones--while learning from a wide range of colleagues with interests that range from chemistry to literacy to embodied cognitive to urban planning.
