Students can prepare to champion climate solutions in their careers by exploring climate and sustainability connections in the classroom and beyond. Claire Wang—a 2019 Trinity graduate and Rhodes Scholar who is now a senior policy advisor at the U.S. Department of State—describes the “truly unparalleled student experience” that led to her career in climate policy.
Duke students can pursue degrees related directly to climate, as Claire did—or engage in climate-relevant courses as they pursue any major. Through the Duke Climate Commitment, the university is continuing to expand climate and sustainability learning opportunities.
