2017 Major: Classical Studies; minor in Art History
"A Classical education from Duke was formational in preparing me for a career after graduating from Duke. The Duke Classics Faculty helped me to build on skills such as how to think and analyze on a micro level, allowing me to delve deep into words, grammar, and structure to understand subliminal messages whilst considering the broader context. Additionally, the Classics department provided excellent training skills that I now use on a daily basis, such as articulating ideas clearly through both oral and written communication. Studying the Classics has also made me a more open-minded, creative and curious person."
"Take advantage of the various research and field work programmes available to students (from Bass Connections to inter-institutional courses at UNC Chapel Hill – notably the Azoria Project). Furthermore, as technology improves and progresses there will be increasing inter-disciplinary overlap. This will allow for interests such as computer science to be more regularly used in Classical Studies programmes."
