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

The Faculty were amazing. Professors Feaver, Gillespie, Munger, Grieco and many other are superstars in the field. They gave me the vision and confidence to explore interdisciplinary and cross-collaborative opportunities at Duke. The program prepared me for my career in research by training me in analytical thought, academic writing, and qualitative research methods.

What advice would you give students in Political Science?

Engage with the faculty. Try to connect with them on a personal level.
