This page highlights the past and present accomplishments and activities of our history students.

KWU Department of History graduates work as lawyers, museum professionals, librarians, office managers, a psychiatric technician, and in sales. They are regularly accepted into graduate school. And many work as teachers. Our B.A. in History Education graduates have a 95% pass rate on their content exam, and one of them -- Mr. Joshua Massey -- received the 2012 Salina School District Horizon Award for excellence in first year teaching. Many of our majors graduate with honors.

 In addition, our students have been accepted into interesting and important internships at places like Smoky Hill Museum, Eisenhower Presidential Library and Museum, and the Family, Career, and Community Leaders of America National Organization in Washington, D.C. One History major recently did an internship in the Washington, D.C. office of Senator Jerry Moran.
