Ellen Shaikun

From a Humanities Alumna

“My Humanities major gave me the background and insight I tap into everyday to understand and interact successfully in all of my ‘worlds.’ It provided the necessary mindset I need to navigate successfully through my diverse professional community. Everyone should major in the humanities, but if not, the humanities should be a part of every major—it teaches us about where we came from and who we are and where we can go.”

—Ellen Shaikun, Berkshire Hathaway
