Student Story

Two people leaning towards each other, smilingIsabelle Doan  and Daniel Ntim are both majoring in public policy.

Daniel was drawn to the interdisciplinary aspects of the major. "It features research, business implementation, micro and macroeconomics, and even facets of cultural anthropology," he says.

Isabelle agrees. She is pre-med, but also has an interest in health policy, and she particularly liked taking a class in global health ethics. Explore more #HumansofDukeSanford stories.
