Student Spotlight: Caitlin Werner

Sophomore Caitlin Werner told us that one of the main reasons she decided to attend UD is because “they offer a great undeclared student program. Working with her UST advisor, Sharon Grayson, Caitlin has been able to explore various interests while taking classes that meet general requirements. She intends to pursue a minor in Spanish and study abroad in the future.

Caitlin’s advice for other students is to join a club or sport when you arrive on campus, because it provides a good way to connect with others. She participates in the Blue Hen Leadership Program and is a member of the RSO, Women in Business.


One way to enhance any major is to minor in Global Studies – the interdisciplinary study of the political and cultural foundations of global issues. All students in this minor take three core courses – ARSC300, ANTH101, and POSC270 – as well as three courses from their chosen track. Two tracks are available in this minor – Global Systems and Human Rights and Security. For more information, contact faculty director Cynthia Schmidt-Cruz.
