Jared Diaz

My name is Jared Diaz, and I am a student at California State University, Northridge. I am originally from San Diego, CA, but I grew up in Los Angeles County. My majors are Linguistics and Religious Studies, and I am also minoring in Anthropology. I plan to pursue a doctoral degree in Religious Studies, specifically, the area of East Asian Religions. The traditions that interest me the most are Buddhism and Taoism in China and Japan. Right now, what I look forward to learning about the most in this program is what it is like to work in my field of interest.
