Proctor Academic Concentrations Program

Academic Concentrations lie at the intersection of intellectual curiosity and academic rigor. By empowering self-directed students to design an individualized program of coursework, experiential learning beyond campus, and a culminating capstone, Concentrations assist intellectual development on a sophisticated level. Each of the five Concentrations aligns with intentional interdisciplinary guidelines that students tailor to create individualized academic and experiential plans.

As I take a final look back on my concentration, I give it large amounts of credit for shaping the person I am today at Proctor and whom I will continue to be. Because of this opportunity through Proctor and the New Hampshire Women's Foundation, I discovered a true passion of mine. I have decided to continue in college as a Women's Studies and Sexuality Studies minor. My whole worldview has shifted, which in the bigger picture has allowed for mental growth beyond what I had thought was possible within just two years here. I believe this style of integrated learning has elevated my love for nontraditional learning, as I am gaining real-world experience. As I have noticed throughout my years in a classroom, I am a visual learner. I was able to observe oppressive power and understand what groups can accomplish when we can put ourselves aside for the greater good of humanity. I have hopes for the future generation of women as we continually take back our rightful ownership of the power of womanhood.
