About Us

Our students gain historical knowledge, marketable research and writing skills that are valuable for civic engagement, intellectual enrichment and many different careers.

We provide graduates with a course of studies that will take them toward careers like education, law, politics, public policy, government, economic development, research and historical preservation, philanthropy and nonprofits organizations, and professional writing.

Students embrace opportunities for hands-on learning experiences with internships and study abroad. We create a vibrant community where students find intellectual homes in the sharing of ideas, collaborative learning and supportive academic inquiry.
