What department are you a graduate student in?
Why did you decide to go to graduate school?
As someone deeply passionate about pursuing a more equitable society, I wanted a tangible way to impact public discourse and, hopefully, even public policy. Graduate school gives me the tools to do this.
Did your interests change throughout your program?
While my interest in studying inequalities has remained the same, my research focus as of late has shifted from LGBTQ-related issues to the health-related impacts of racism.
What do you want to do with your advanced degree?
My long-term goal is to secure a tenure-track position as a university professor.
Tim Arthur is a PhD Candidate in the Department of Sociology at FSU.
