How has being a Cultural Anthropology graduate from Duke helped shape you personally and/or professionally?

"CulAnth helped me hone research and writing skills while investigating fascinating issues and pushed me into new ways of thinking. The breadth of courses expanded my worldview and presented me with ideas and people I was ignorant of, and allowed me the opportunity to explore a variety of topics with a critical lens."

What advice would you give students in Duke's Cultural Anthropology programs?

"Take courses across the department in areas that stretch your comfort zone and allow you to dig into completely new areas of study. Also take as many of the smaller seminar courses as possible to hold yourself accountable to the material and to engage more deeply in the topics provided."
