2005 Ph.D., Religious Studies

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

"It's not just prepared me professionally, it's shaped nearly every part of who I am."

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

"Don't just think about academic jobs--the PhD can prepare you to do a wide variety of things. I was surprised but pleased to find myself working in journalism, for a think tank. Other peers have worked in publishing and for foundations."
