Marc Dones

BA '11- Psychiatric Anthropology

Marc came to Gallatin from Bloomfield Hills, Michigan, to develop his concentration, Psychiatric Anthropology. For it, he used anthropological methodology to evaluate the construction of psychiatric disease classifications. Marc says his senior project–writing a thesis on the neuroscience of addiction–was one of the most inspiring things he did at the School. He says, "The faculty all genuinely cared about whether or not I succeeded, but more than that, they cared about me as a person and wanted to make sure that I graduated as a well-rounded person and not just an accomplished academic.”
