English Minor Spotlight

Tim Mehrmann, a pre-med Biochemistry major, plans to attend medical school after graduation. He says, "I am particularly interested in the study of infectious disease, and hope to one day specialize as an infectious disease doctor. ... I’ve been an English minor since the second semester of my freshman year, and I have thoroughly enjoyed it. So far, having a minor in English has improved my communication skills and given me the opportunity to expand my horizons beyond STEM."
