City Learning, Through A Global Lens

Not only does Renata Carniero have an eye for some of society's most unnoticed issues — she sees them through a global lens.

So when Carniero decided to pursue a PhD, she wanted to study at a location with access to the corners of the world.

"I'm from a big city in Brazil, so I wanted to be in a big city with a lot of cultures in it," says Carniero, who hails from São Paulo. "There's a bit of everything and everyone in Philadelphia."

Carniero is now working to complete in Drexel's couples and family therapy program — a curriculum she said was a perfect fit for her interests in social justice and activism.

"The program's social justice perspective mixed with many multicultural aspects — they fit well with my philosophy of what a good therapist should be like," Carniero says. "I knew it could help me become someone who is aware of themselves, and someone who uses themselves as a tool for their work beyond their surroundings."
