Bachelor of Arts Degree

Advisor: Dr. Gary Pranger

 

Program Overview

"I have always longed to be a time traveler, and my classes feed this desire for bygone adventures. Studying history is a call to remember and understand the tangled past of humanity. Through its failures and victories, I am endlessly inspired. I am honored to be a possessor of memories."
