I stumbled upon the ICS major after searching across a broad range of academic studies Duke offers. What I loved about ICS was that it allowed me as the student to largely determine where I wanted to focus my interests and passions, while still keeping me organizationally accountable to meeting some important requirements before graduation. No ICS major is quite the same, in fact most of us are looking to do pretty unique things, but this makes the ICS community at Duke something really special. I've had the opportunity to do a lot of travel to sub-saharan Africa for internships, study abroad, and service work in my time at Duke and I can honestly say that all of it has been completely relevant and complementary to my studies at Duke with ICS. ICS has encouraged me to look outside the box of a typical academic experience, and instead pursue a path of true meaning for what is going on in the world today.
