Why Study History?

Our full-time history professors are all published authors actively pursuing research agendas and book projects. This is because excellence in teaching is their priority. In the words of the Assoc. of American Colleges and Universities, "Teacher-scholars are committed to high-quality undergraduate education, pursue an active program of research and scholarship, and are presumed to enliven and enrich their teaching and the student experience by incorporating insights from their own research into their instructional activities, student advising, and related work" (Kuh, et al., "Why Teacher-Scholars Matter," Liberal Education, Fall 2007).

How We're Different Our full-time history professors are published authors actively pursuing research agendas and book projects. Recent history alumni have pursued work in graduate schools, the foreign-service, public history (museums, state historic parks, archives), politics, law, business, and teaching at the college, secondary, and elementary levels. Our alumni include published writers like Michael Deeb, the author of The Drieborg Chronicles, a Civil War trilogy. Our students present at conferences including Phi Alpha Theta and The Great Lakes History Conference. Our very active History Club hosts social and educational events, including movie nights, guided museum tours, and trips to Chicago. Studying history contributes to the resilience and adaptability needed to flourish in a rapidly changing economy. A degree in history from Aquinas ensures that graduates have attained a level of reading comprehension, facility in written and oral communication, research skills, and analytical thinking to succeed in any career paths. These transferable skills enable our graduates to find satisfying... [-]
