My time in the History & Literature concentration at Harvard was incredibly rewarding on two fronts. The broad range of elective courses I was able to enroll in for concentration credit allowed me to craft an academic trajectory that fit my intellectual interests while expanding my knowledge base. Likewise, the rigorous concentration seminars helped refine my writing and researching skills even as I studied the topics that were of most interest to me. Through these core components of the History & Literature concentration, I ultimately developed my interest in the study of war and the military. Now, I'm a research assistant at the American Enterprise Institute, where I conduct research on unconventional warfare and foreign military strategic culture.
