“The thing I love about the HTS degree is the freedom that it gave me to mold my studies after my own interests. With more free electives than any other major, HTS not only allows students to pick from a wide variety of courses but also encourages their interests in other fields. I went on the amazing Oxford Summer Program and took courses in areas such as traditional Asian culture, the French Revolution, and the history of engineering."
