History Majors Study Abroad

 

Why study History abroad?
Old map image
"As citizens of an ostensibly "new" country, American students majoring in history need to study their subject abroad as well as at home in order to get a true sense of the way in which centuries of memories enrich and constrain most of the cultures of our world.  In the process we discover an astounding thing -- that their histories are our history too!
EAP will double the value of your major, both for yourself and for those who ultimately employ you!"

-Keith Nelson
Professor of History
