Meet Kathleen Hughes ’19
Kathleen Hughes was the first undergraduate student to be accepted to the International Human Science Research Conference in Molde, Norway, where she presented her phenomenological research that focuses on the impact of public community spaces on the Latinx community in Spartanburg, S.C. After graduation she moved to Washington, D.C., to pursue an entry-level position with a research institute before matriculating into a master’s or Ph.D. program in philosophy after several years in the workforce. “Being a philosophy major taught me important critical thinking skills, as well as the ability to analyze an argument from both perspectives,” says Hughes.
