“I was looking for something less traditional,” says Lewis. “The Bachelor's Program for Adults and Transfer Students is perfect. Classes are small, and the Global Studies program is experiential, integrated, and service oriented and crosses traditional educational boundaries.”According to Lewis, her most rewarding experience as an undergraduate at The New School has been a program in Johannesburg, South Africa, sponsored by the university’s Transregional Center for Democratic Studies.
“Jonathan Bach, my super-supportive advisor, thought I’d make a perfect candidate and could handle the graduate-level work," she says. "The experience was incredible.”
After completing her degree, Lewis plans to go on to a master’s degree and hopes to build a career working for human rights.
