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

"A lot of what I am responsible for now consists of analyzing the past in order to make strategic decisions moving forward. Studying History is all about understanding how previous events shaped the future."

What advice would you give students in History?

"It's possible that the specific facts and criteria learned while studying History may not directly apply to your future career responsibilities. Choose a path within History that interests you and take away the major themes that are discussed. Learn the benefit of how understanding the past can better shape the future."
