Bayley Tuch, C'21, thought she would major in Biological Basis of Behavior, but taking a political science class changed her course. Now she's majoring in political science and pursuing two minors: survey research and data analytics and computer science. Her interests took her to Uganda with a Penn Global Seminar, where she studied how technology affects local political outcomes. Thanks to a fellowship at the Penn Program on Opinion Research and Election Studies (PORES), she was able to contribute to original research on that same topic, working alongside Guy Grossman, Associate Professor of Political Science.

Pathways is a student series from Penn Arts & Sciences that highlights the academic journey of students in the College of Arts & Sciences and the transformational moments that have shaped their intellectual experiences.
