How has being a History graduate from Duke helped shape your professional success?

"My degree in History led me to become an elementary school teacher. I then went back to school to get my Masters in Social Work. My History degree helped prepare me for the rigors of graduate school, especially the research required as a part of my graduate degree."

What advice would you give students in History?

"Getting a degree in History helped to prepare me for the rigors of graduate school. Having to do research for my classes gave me a leg up with having to do research as a part of my graduate program."
