"Duke sociology helped me to understand people, and think outside of myself. I work in an environment with people from many different backgrounds, and it brings a lot of challenges. Duke sociology challenged me to gather an understanding of social order, social behavior, social structure, etc. These things help me relate to my people, and be more understanding of them. I am in a people oriented business, and my duke education has definitely helped me problem solve, and get the best out of my workers."
