Andreas Herzog - M.A.

Ph.D. Candidate in English at USC

Tell us about your current job.

I am currently a PhD candidate (ABD) in English (Composition and Rhetoric). I continue to teach ENGL 101, 102, and also 462 and 463 (Technical Writing and Business Writing).

Why did you choose our program? Did you get what you wanted from the Linguistics Program?

I chose USC because the Linguistics program is one of the best in the Southeast, even though it is relatively small. I was offered full funding, so that was another reason why I initially came here.

What is your favorite thing in Columbia, SC?‚Äč

My favorite thing in Columbia is the University itself; its campus, facilities, sports teams, and the people that study and work there.
