‘The past is a foreign country: they do things differently there.’ ~ L.P. Hartley
Welcome to the Presbyterian College History Department, where we pride ourselves on offering students an educational experience that places them in the front and center of an engaging global-based curriculum. Here you can learn all about our dynamic and talented professors who bring history to life both in and out of the classroom; our wide-range of course offerings on such diverse topics as China, Latin America, Scotland, Africa, the Holocaust, women, race, the 1960s, JFK, and medieval warfare; our faculty-led study abroad trips that have taken history majors to countries such as Vietnam, Turkey, Israel, Egypt, Germany, Scotland, Ireland, and Spain; and, finally, our accomplished alumni whose history major has launched them into careers in law, ministry, journalism, foreign service, education, military service, business, and the Peace Corps.
If you have any questions about the history major, the opportunities described here, or would like to sit in on one of our classes, please don’t hesitate to contact me at email@example.com.
Thank you for visiting the History Department webpage – we hope to meet you in person one day soon!
Roy B. Campbell, Ph.D.
