"Medieval Studies gave me the skills necessary to research historical events, people, etc. in a meaningful way, which relates directly to researching exhibits and artifacts in the museum profession. It also kept my creativity alive through unique and varied assignments, which is something that is really important when designing exhibits. [...] I can honestly say, I would not have had the opportunities I have had, including an awesome job with Parks Canada, if I had not enrolled in the program."
