Matthew Reisman '00 — Lead International Trade Analyst United States International Trade Commission

Comparative Area Studies (now ICS) afforded me an invaluable opportunity to explore my interest in international affairs across a range of disciplines, from history and political science to literature and the arts. It also provided an ideal way to integrate study abroad--in my case, a semester studying history and geography in Madagascar--into my course of study at Duke. The knowledge I gained through my CAS coursework and the diverse analytical approaches to which I was exposed have proved useful throughout my career.
