The MAIS’ interdisciplinary options allowed Dan Flores to pursue his interests in philosophy, biology and psychology, which help him as a professor, adviser and administrator at Houston Community College. He relished the experience because it made him a better student and a more marketable professional. He is a low-residency humanities Ph.D. student at Salve Regina University in Rhode Island.
