Boldly challenging yourself to understand history–where we have been as a culture and a country–can help you change the future and advocate for a better world. At EMU, studying history is about more than just learning dates and events. Rather, it is an exploration of how people lived in particular times and places–in both national and global contexts. We encourage our majors to move beyond classroom learning with eye-opening cross-cultural experiences and resume-building internships at the Washington Community Scholar's Center for real-world understanding and first-hand knowledge about how politics and culture shape history.

Majors are strongly encouraged to divide their courses among various regions and periods.

It is also strongly suggested that majors do both a semester long cross-cultural and the WCSC program.
