“I do a lot of writing and editing in my role. Most of it is short hand – talking points, quotes for media, social media posts – but the foundation I built writing papers in my major certainly helped set me up to do that well.

It’s rare that I need art knowledge on the job – I think it happened once and I was delighted – but the critical thinking you learn in every liberal arts major is key to my field.”
