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

My coursework in the English Department aquainted me with the classics as well as trends in modern literature and tauight me the basics of literary critism. This information was essential to my success as a librarian. I also learned to express myself in writing, a skill that was invaluable at all levels of my career.
