Associate Professor Hilton-Hagemann
History is the study of the past, and of change over time. At Doane, the history major is geared toward in-depth study of Western (American and European) history and traditions. The major also exposes students to non-Western cultures such as those of Asia and the Middle East. History graduates go on to graduate study and work in a variety of career fields. History majors are attractive to employers because they have the ability to think critically, have developed good written and verbal communication skills, and are careful and attentive researchers. Over the years, a number of Doane history majors have won the prestigious Fulbright scholarship for post-graduation employment and/or research at an international site.
