The History department provides many opportunities for learning outside the classroom. We have facilitated internships at nearby museums and supported independent student projects and presentations at national conferences.
Independent Research Projects
Inspired by a project for the Global History of Food course, Ann Mazzaferro '10 received a Pacific Fund grant to travel to Boston to research "The Woman Suffrage Cookbook of 1886." Ann is standing at No. 3 Park Street—the location where the Massachuhilsetts Woman Suffrage Association held their meetings.
Presenting at National Conferences
Lloyd Barba '10 graduated with a double-major in History and Religious Studies. During his senior year, Lloyd presented his research on the Pentecostal movement at the National Conference on Undergraduate Research (NCUR) at the University of Montana.
Elizabeth Youngberg '12, one of Pacific's elite Powell Scholars, participated in an internship at the nearby Haggin Museum, where she worked on translating a historical document from French into English and performed tasks for the museum's archivist.
