How has being an English graduate from Duke University help shape your professional success?

Above all, my English degree helped me learn to critically analyze information. Whether I'm writing a policy brief or designing a research study, I need to evaluate arguments, previous research, and sources. This skill is highly valued in graduate and professional roles, and it allows me to effectively distinguish between rhetoric and substantive content.
