Education

Bachelor of Social Sciences in Sociology, Politics and International Relations - Rhodes University

I minored in Economics, Mathematica Statistics, Legal Theory 1 and 2, Psychology and Philosophy. These courses, combined with my majors in Sociology, Politics, and International Relations, have broadened my understanding of history from a sociological, philosophical and political level by enhancing my research skills and providing me with multiple perspectives on how society can be studied. The combination of Legal Theory, Economics, and Politics has enabled my understanding of South Africa's current political climate and its existence in the international community. Psychology assisted in my understanding of the different kinds of people who exist in society, through evolution.
