“My favorite class at Mizzou was Professor Robert Hazel’s Law and Economics course. The class opened my eyes to the many incentives and priorities at play in the US legal system and made my classmates and myself question what just and efficient laws should look like.”
“I would advise actively cultivating an open mind while attending school and potentially adding a philosophy elective with a focus in epistemology if your schedule allows. Most of my education was self-taught until attending the university and I initially found ideas that conflicted with my worldview extremely challenging to internalize. Epistemology courses helped me compartmentalize concepts and was extremely useful for classes and life.”
