Prompt: Describe your intellectual interests, their evolution, and what makes them exciting to you. Tell us how you will utilize academic programs in the College of Arts and Sciences to further explore your interests, intended major, or field of study.

Under the unique Double Majors Program, I would like to combine History and Economics. Generally, this unusual goal tied my passion for history and my curiosity in finance.

From an early stage, I have always found it an exciting exploration when learning the story behind cultural relics and considered the process of studying history as a recreational work of archaeological work. The objective existence of the absolute beauty appears almost a religion to me. Read history books just makes ma feel as if I am passing through the time tunnel back to hundreds of years ago to visit people and personally experience the development of society.

Under my dad's influence, a manager with a finance and management degree, I have developed a strong interest in economics. As a young girl, it was inspirational hearing about his business ventures, and meeting the varied and interesting circle of entrepreneurs. I once read my dad's book "Principles of Economics" by N. Gregory Mankiw. It is a young and fashion teacher who sits on student's tables instead of high platforms. Mankiw uses examples like popular movie stars, sports stars, and even the controversial TV series, but enough to create the impression of economics for us. In fact, facing the analysis of the practical problems, what people use most are the concepts and theorems still in primary textbooks. Through studying this book, I fell in love with economics and finance. Unlike history, which investigate former human beings, financial analysis and economics concern more about the reasonable choices of modern people.

After attending the double major program for a period of time, I would like to make a map to find out the inner links between history and economics. So I will take the advantage of excellent faculty and outstanding research sources in the College of Arts and Sciences to make some ground-breaking discoveries.

Good evening.

My main concern here is your mechanics; you have a good response, but I am afraid that your story will get lost in mechanical errors, mainly the rules of capitalization. To help with this, I suggest one of the books from the "Prentice Hall Guide for College Writers" series written by Stephen Reid. You can pick any of them up cheap used, or get them from the library. I think there are six in the series now, and any of them would help you here. I also suggest running your paper through a spell checking program.

In regards to content, you have a great goal and you describe it well. I especially like your conclusion.
