2003 Major: Biology; minor in Chemistry and Spanish
"My Biology degree from Duke helped to launch my career as a conservation scientist. I started as a wildlife biologist, and eventually shifted to social science and "human dimensions" of natural resource management. My Duke experience prepared me to understand and study both the ecological and social dimensions of the complex systems that make contemporary conservation efforts so challenging."
"My advice: gain as much practical experience as you possibly can! Whether your aspirations are in the lab or in the field, find ways to learn things and develop skills outside of the classroom that will help prepare you for your professional pursuits."
