Major: History/Histories (art history/etc.) (This Major's Salary over time)
While the undergrad population here (including many of the students for whom I've TA'd) consists primarily of rich, snobby, arrogant, spoiled brats, the graduate student population is collegial, cooperative, interesting and extremely intelligent. The nature of the undergrads makes daily life on campus a bit trying at times, but such problems are more than made up for in graduate seminars and at events that showcase the talent in the graduate student body. The faculty in my department and in the research centers with which I've been involved have, with very few exceptions, been extremely helpful and supportive—many have gone above and beyond the call of duty in helping me with my research and work, and supporting me personally. The intellectual climate here is great—there is always a talk or a conference or special seminar to go to, the resources for my research are top-quality, the library staff is wonderfully helpful, and there are ample opportunities for grad students to be involved in new intellectual initiatives, both as participants and as organizers. I'm extremely happy with my choice to come to Duke and feel like I'm getting the best doctoral training possible.
