The history department prides itself on offering opportunities for experiential education and civic engagement as integral parts of coursework. Spend class time at the Historical and Cultural Society of Clay County or learn about community sustainability through your capstone course.
Earn academic credit for an internship with Moorhead’s Hjemkomst Interpretive Center or a historical society near your hometown. Spend a semester in Washington, D.C., as an intern with the National Archives. Build your resume with real-world projects, like this student-created website.
Studying history will also help you during the time you spend abroad, walking through medieval castles or among ruins of ancient civilizations.
You can also graduate with departmental honors or join the honor society. Present a student lecture your senior year on a topic that you find fascinating.
Regardless of the path you choose, a history major will lay a strong foundation in critical thinking, communication and organizational skills that will prepare you for years to come.
