Meet Patrick Belin

I became interested in the University Honors Program when I learnt that the curriculum was made to prepare students with an interest in moving on to grad school—with the additional selling point that I would be among a significantly smaller cohort as opposed to the University Studies track. Since I have always been interested in the humanities I embraced the material completely and feel much more well-informed about the nature of what we know, i.e. ‘knowledge’; and to put it in other words, I simply have a much better sense of “how the world works,” in a very broad sense of the phrase. If I am to emphasize only one aspect of how my experience in Honors has benefited me, it would be that I can now proceed in my studies more confidently in asking the most relevant questions within my field than I have ever been able to.
