Our faculty has a wide range of expertise, experience, interests and connections. They are writers, researchers, public speakers, administrators, and community leaders. But they are, first and foremost, teachers, and the small size of most history classes makes for exceptional interaction between teacher and student.
You, like many of our students, may find yourself preparing a paper to present at an undergraduate research conference or preparing a senior thesis. Our faculty will encourage you to excel and develop your talents to the fullest. They will give support and advice as you plan for your career or further study. They will even steer you toward valuable scholarship and internship opportunities. As a history major, you will receive a quality education with a personal touch.
