“One of the great strengths of the graduate school is the rigor of the program. Teaching us how to read well and especially how to think and to write well—those are invaluable. Those skills, those arts, those are what are going to open doors for us as journalists, as speechwriters, as scholars. Those are the skills that we need to cultivate, and this is the place to do that well.”
